We had a revolution, and chanted no taxation with out representation. Which means we need to know what the tax is paying for.
So now they put tax on tobacco and tell us it is for health care for children.
I see the point in being over taxed, but the tax is legal and there is nothing you can do about it if you want to continue to purchase tobacco in America.
An alternative is to either quit or switch to an un-taxed nicotine substitute such as electronic cigarettes. That is what I did.

My father passed away from colon cancer a while back. He was a heavy smoker until his mid forties. Lung cancer is not the only cancer that tobacco products can cause. I do not have much sympathy for the tobacco industry for getting so many of us Americans addicted to their poisons. They are just as bad as the crack dealer, except the tobacco companies poison is legal.
