There are far more important matters right now than making people stop smoking. I wish they would stop trying to make us do what they want because they are trying to 'save' us. Big brother always knows whats best, doesn't he? We need less regulation. I think I have heard that somewhere before.  ;)

last night I went to buy our 2 cartons a week and the price on each carton went up $5.. I asked Mr Merchant, because the new tax dont take  effect  until 4/1 and he said the vendors are jackin the price now and then the tax will kick in on 4/1// So my carton will be going up another  $10 per carton..
