Info for the smokers

March 1st is when the new SCHIP tobacco taxes take effect:

RYO tobacco will increase $25 - $35 per pound.  Papers and tubes will increase between twenty and thirty cents per package.

Pipe tobacco users get to add an extra $3 or so per pound.

Small cigars will also be more expensive too....around $6 or so more than what you pay now.

Cigarettes are going to go up too - at least another buck a pack.


So, smokers, do you plan on quitting on April 1st?  Or are you going to start hording?
