    Maybe in the USA it's different, but here, we have an universal healthcare and everybody is paying for the society. Healthy people pay as much as those who smoke 50 cigarettes a day, and that is not fair since I'm much less likely to have a cancer.

    So, to make it fair again, cigarettes should be very expensive.

    That way, smokers pay for their cancers, and they are also likely to smoke less.

    And I don't say that for cigarettes only, it's the same for alcohol, unhealthy food, polluting cars...every single thing that has a cost to society has to be taxed, so that those who consume these "bad things" are the ones who pay for the consequences of their uncivic behavior.
    Do the taxes that are collected from cigarettes go directly into the healthcare system, or do they just go into a general fund? I would think its not fair at all either, and in a universal healthcare scenario, you shouldn't be able to smoke or drink, or do any drugs at all. How does it make sense to ban fruit loops, but permit alchohol/cigarettes?

    In Kentucky it simply goes to the state budget. Though, here in Louisville we still pay much less for cigarettes than most states, at $40per carton.

    Indeed it is.



    But when I am drinking a Speyside I lean towards any of the Balvenie.


    We did just recently finish a 1976 reserve Bruichladdich that was a phenomenal Islay....

    I will try to get one this weekend. You know, they raised both the tobacco and alcohol tax here. It is like living in the USSR or something.

    Two cigars I must reccommend.

    For a treat.

    Camacho 11/18


    for the everyday consistant smoke, relativley inexpensive.

    Any of the CAO Brazillia series.

    I handed out the GOL!'s for Aiden's birth.....


    I can't talk either of these enough enough...


    I have also been highly fond of the gurhka shaggies.
