I've attached a link to a USA TODAY article on today's front page.
How ironic that the states, in a time when many representatives are trying to KILL smoker's rights, are now looking to INCREASE TAX REVENUES from tobacco to fund their state budget shortfalls.
The message is clear here. Reach out to your state representatives and let them know that as a taxpayer, you have rights as well - rights that are helping in these economic times.
It seems like a never-ending cycle. We need the states to leave tobacco taxes alone.
