I agree and I think it's heading that way eventually. Perhaps in our lifetime we'll see it.

I think we will see it sooner rather than later. With the economy the way it is states like CA and NJ have looked into it. CA actually has a bill that they are trying to pass. Once one state passes it and if the federal government(With the administration now and withe the violence from the mexican drug cartels spilling over the borders they may be open to it) doesn't intervene other states will follow when they see the money that can be made. I think it will start in the west and move east with not all states doing it. But I think the first laws will be passed within 5 years.

Yeah it was a stupid argument. That's because I was making fun of yours. It's all good when it's someone else, but when it's you, well . . . . That's wrong!

Up in Michigan a lot of the Arabs and South Asians were getting caught smuggling cigarettes from North Carolina. They'd buy 999 cartons at a time to avoid the paperwork.

Just like car insurance where if you're prone to accidents you pay a higher premium, so should smokers because their hospital and pharmaceutical utilization is higher.

I don't care whether the additional tax revenue actually goes to Medicare, or goes somewhere else. Bottom line is it's only fair to pay more for risk coverage if you engage in riskier behavior.
I couldn't agree more. The follow-up would be difficult though.
