Who but the government raises taxes on a product they are trying to destroy? Where will they get the tax money if the majority of smokers stop buying legal tobacco? Of coures they will raise it elsewhere and the fools that thought it was a good thing will start paying that tax. In the meantime a new criminal enterprise is being born. A black market in tobacco. We obviously didn't learn anything from the prohibition attempt in the 20s.
