Title: Cigarette taxes and states
Published: Ventura County Star
Date: Aug. 9, 2002
About this cartoon: Many localities and states such as New York City and California have raised cigareete taxes to, in part, compel smokers to quit that habit. Problem is, these localities and states grow dependent on all that tax revenue, and if all smokers actually quit it would play hell with these local and state budgets.
Noteworthy: This is at least my third cartoon about this type of conflict-of-interest.
