Ketchikan's proposed cigarette tax

By John Loyd

Why don't the lawmakers put an outrageous tax on Alcohol? This is stupid to put it on just cigarettes! I guess our Ketchikan lawmakers think it's more dangerous to get hit by someone smoking and driving a car than someone drinking and driving. I have never heard of someone getting hit by someone smoking and driving.

Raise the tax on alcohol and they will get the money they need to give all the government workers raises and make better roads in Ketchikan!!
