Here is an idea? Rather than patting each other on the back for imposing a 75 percent tax on a legal product, let tobacco users form a committee to decide where this 1.2 million dollars a year will go.

Or would that be like giving the boogie man credit for raising 1.2 million dollars for our kids?
