    It’s a misconception – the number of smokers does not decrease, they simply buy them in other states or Indian reservations.

    Oregon is also proposing another tax hike, too. Nothing like having a minority group paying all the taxes.

    Wouldn’t the healthcare needs decrease as fewer people smoke? Or are we expecting this revenue stream to cover all illnesses?
