    why not put more tax on liquer why cigarettes everytime how much are drinks on the road costing the healthcare system you never hear anything about that i guess all the polliations dont want to pay more for there liquer but its ok to lay all that extra taxes on the smokers anyone that smokes will be the first to tell you that they need to quit but most like me enjoy smoking and it just doesnt seem fair to expect a select few to pay for all the waste of goverment that let the state get so far in debt and expect us to bail them out stop picking on the smokers all the time and money is not going to stop teens from smoking they need to get out in the real world and live for awhile and they would see things a whole different
