    That is (IMO) the most effective idea. However, disincentivizing the bulk-sales marketing technique should have a similar (albeit less profound) effect.

    It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion.

    Sure. We have a 'sin tax' here, no one has died from it yet.

    Then yeah, I'd agree that it has nothing to do with health and is all about trying to fine people.

    IF you're in NY, yeah that's what I hear. I bitched about our smoke tax (28 bucks a carton) until I heard about NY price for a pack!

    Is that the tax or the total price of a carton? If it's the total price, you've got nothing to bitch about.

    Hell, if it's just the tax you still ain't got much to complain about.

    I think NYC may want to give San Francisco a run for their money as far as being the dumbest city in America.

    Let NYC have it. San Francisco can remain the Smuggiest (Zyphli'ns law)
