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.
