Smokers fume as prices jump ahead of tax hike


If you choose to read the comments for this article, you might get a laugh outta that anti who implies smokers were used by tobacco companies.

Last time I checked, Lorillard neva "used me" by giving me a free Newport pack. Although there WAS an era when they used to give out free Newports to folks in black communities....that was a few years before I was born in the 70s.

But I'M the one who decided to smoke Newports. Not Lorillard. As anotha person implied in the comments, antis will be next when they start paying more taxes on fast food. They (the antis) will b!t+ch about taxes then if they ever have to pay 10 bucks for a Big Mac.

Just cause tobacco taxes don't affect antis doesn't mean the tax increase will hurt them in otha ways in the near future. First it's tobacco. The next items that will see tax increases is fast food and this 10-cent/gallon tax increase on gasoline I heard about. I know antis use gasoline and they love fast food.
