Ketchikan's cigarette tax
By Chris Elliott
September 09, 2015
I'm down to 2-3 cigarettes a day, so a tax on them isn't going to hurt me much, but I think our government leaders are missing out on a real cash cow... BOOZE! If they're just looking for an easy mark, booze is going to bring in a lot of extra cash if a hefty tax is levied on it.
Don't know what they're thinking. Easy money is easy money. Why stop with cigarettes when you've got booze just hanging around, waiting to be pillaged?
