I didnt say everyone, but definitely gives anyone with access to the reservations a reason to start buying there.It's very interesting that you think everyone is going to start buying cigarettes through Indian reservations. Do they have a website where one can order them? If they do, I suspect that if I order a pack from an Indian reservation in Arizona, I'm going to have to pay Virginia taxes since I live in Virginia.
Think about this for a sec. Right across the street I can buy a carton of Marlobor Light 100's. The carton costs roughly $50.00. Now with this tax going into place it's going to be what 60 cents more per pack? (Some have been saying it may go up over a dollar per pack) there are 10 packs in a carton, that's 6 bucks more.
On the indian reservation about 20 minutes away, I can buy that same carton for $24.99. No taxes, no bull****.
Now, to justify the gas, I could buy two cartons for the price of one (walking) across the street.
NONE of the money I just spent is going back into state, or federal finances.
