Yeah, it's a cigar tax, and yeah it's "for the children", but COME ON! From a nickel up to $10 a stick? That's unheard of, even for third-world corrupt nations...why not tax drumsticks or drumheads instead? I personally enjoy fine cigars, and this proposed tax would put them out of reach of most mere mortals. It would mean that my stogies would shoot up over 150%! Instead of a manageable $10-15 a pop, it would go up to 20-25 a stick! I wonder if my local tobacconist would offer financing at that point?
