Re: Cigarette Tax passes Louisiana House

It seems like there is the only one way to close budget shortfall - to increase excise tax on cigarettes!Are they crazy! Cigarette smugglers are boosting their sales cause cigarettes in United States are damn expensive! Smokers are like a cash cow for our government! I have always been a good taxpayer but taxes on cigarettes are just killing here. I started to buy cigarettes online produced in Eastern Europe. There are a lot of websites that sell European cigarettes like They deliver cigarettes within two weeks and I pay 3 times less for carton of Marlboro including even delivery expenses. This constant tax increase or renewal just drive business online!
