this 2020 budget increase is outrageously unfair

I believe this tax isnt working and is sending smokers into poverty which is impacting on retail spending. Tobacco is not the biggest cause of premature death for tax paying majority. If the excise continues to rise and is not lowered tobacco will become a larger part of the blackmarket, where there is already a huge amount of it sold.

The government does not care about our or any smokers health. If they did why would a pack of blues, less addictive than reds, cost the same about if not more than the reds? And of the gov really cared why would they remove nutritional information from cigarette packets, if we were more informed we could choose healthier or less addictive options rather than being forced to go on smokers forums and decipher what each colour variant means. If the government really cared why would product like nicotine gum and nicotine patches cost the same, if not more than a regular packet of cigarettes? If the government really cared why would QLD outlaw liquid nicotine, something that helps people quit and is a healthier alternative.

I haven’t smoked in years but this is just price gouging and the Government needs to stop it.

Tobacco price rising is ridiculous and the current bans in Sydney CBD is completely unfair, its time for people to stand up for their rights, having an addiction caused by the governments easy access and then being scammed is so wrong

When I started smoking I could buy an outter (10 tins of tobacco) for about $20 and a carton of beer was about $15. Beer’s only tripled in price, 10 packs of tobacco $700! How the hell has our govt. gotten away with killing us via taxes. It’s just perplexing to me. It’s as if they regain the lost taxes they’re now missing out on from those that gave up the fags, via those of us still unable to quit… or not wanting to, so that they aren’t missing a dollar. I’m so far in debt I may not be able to climb out of this hole. The pricing is ridiculous.
