Letters: Smoking tax

May 10, 2012

Re "Call tobacco tax a user fee," Column, May 7

I'm a nonsmoker who is generally in favor of anything that will reduce smoking and stick it to Big Tobacco, but I wonder if we are getting close to the point at which people who smoke — 12% of adults and 14% of high schoolers — can't or won't give it up no matter the price.

Will we just be making life more miserable for the addicted while having little effect on the tobacco companies? After all, if their profits dip, they can just raise the price.
