Arkansas Hits Smokers Again

Terry Potter is going to have to add another item to his Missouri shopping list. Let's see, we have booze, cigarettes and cigarette lighters. Boy, all those mini marts in NW Arkansas are going to be losing quite a bit of business.
"If cigarette smuggling becomes a problem, then we would step up, at the direction of our director," said Capt. Lance King, with Troop L of the Arkansas State Police in Springdale.

Yup, we're going to let those vans of illegals go and forget about the speeders and drunk drivers. We're going after those cars with smoke coming out the windows.

Out of curiosity, doesn't it happen that as taxes increase, smoking decreases?

If we are dependent on smokers to contribute to the tobacco settlement fund (and their taxes for many other projects) why would we then try to reduce the number of smokers?
