I just heard on the news this morning that the Missouri state government is contemplating raising the tax on cigarettes by four times.
They plan to use the extra money to fund health care.
Smoking is Suicide Everyone knows about the increased risk for lung cancer and emphysema.
Those that smoke are more likely to burden the health care system down the road, so it seems fair that they should pay a higher tax for ther priviledge of doing so.
Never-the-less the best thing to do is to quit smoking. You can save money and be healthier.
If you have ever seen an autopsy or have been in a cadaver lab and have seen the charred, blackened lungs of a lifetime smoker, you should want to quit.
If you haven’t seen it in person, hunt around the net a bit and you’ll be able to find some pictures.
Convinced that you need to quit smoking?
