#1 Hmmm, feeling the tax?
Perhaps it's too high, Naah, it's Democrats stronghold, there's no such thing as too much tax.

#3 The tax is still paid, but to a different gang of organized criminals, and just not called a tax.

#4 I am told by friends in the FBI that every time the tax on cigarettes goes up the mafia pops champagne corks. That much more skim for them.

#6 Says there quite a few come from New Hampshire, which makes sense. What about Canada, what are the rules/regulations/potential savings from that trade route?

I'm sure the smuggler/vendors get their finders/risk fee. IMHO not a tax, as they are working for and taking risk on such markup where the tax is passively paid for a transaction. And since you may ask, I don't believe in that taxes built your roads crap, not until the governments start spending our money in a more efficient fashion will I sit at that table to listen.

#7 I am told by friends in the FBI that every time the tax on cigarettes goes up the mafia pops champagne corks. Enterprising Muslims have also have recognized these economics. They have shipped low taxed cigarettes from the South to higher taxed places like Michigan and reaped the benefits. I recall reading in the past that some of these profits were being funneled to nefarious causes.
