Letter — Tobacco bad, taxes good

I’m getting really, really confused.

On the one hand the message goes out that smoking is bad for you.

On the other hand the governors of California and Nevada are putting in their budget an increase on cigarette tax to increase revenue.

Does this mean people should buy cigarettes, pay the taxes and then throw the cigarettes away?
