IL House approves higher cig tax

"Groups trying to discourage smoking also backed the measure. By some estimates, the extra $1 for a pack of cigarettes would persuade 60,000 people to quit smoking and keep 80,000 children from taking up the habit."

ME:   Sounds more like persuading 60k smokers to  buy their cigs outside of IL and in MO or Indiana (or even KY) instead.  Cigs in Wisconsin aint as cheap as Indiana's/MO's prices.

Be prepared to pay 11 bucks for a pack in Chicago pretty soon!  That price in itself is enough to convince me to go somewhere else!
