Even though tobacco is legal, adding all the fees and taxes that have pushed the prices up so dramatically have led to this. They are becoming a black market item simply because the average smoker is not wealthy.

While I never took up the habit, I understand how addiction works. Raising the price to try to fight addiction didn't work with heroin either. This is the very sort of government meddling we need to turn around in the US. The government has no place in regulating our behaviors as long as we aren't taking advantage of others with it.
