Street dealers are more interested in selling cigs instead of drugs
Raising the price of cigs every 3-6 months is not gonna make every smoker quit. Making tobacco illegal will. The only thing a $12 price for a cig pack is gonna do is make selling cigs the new crime profession instead of selling drugs. Bootleggers can make more moolah off of selling packs than selling a DVD movie for only $2. You may not hear it on the news since the media turns a deaf ear to this subject. But I bet the number of cig heists have gone up nationwide since last year.
