no,no. Putthe tax on alcohol. Alcohol and illegal drugs are much worse than cigarettes. Also sent most of the taxes to rehabs. Treat the addicts and give the dealers life sentences or more.

This sort of makes you want a look at the paths all this guy's campaign donations took on their way into his coffers.

No one, No one,from the bottom of the smalles parish to the top of the federal government wants to tax alcohol. cops who sit on their butt and watch the drug dealers deal, don't want to contribute the money , property, cars, guns, etc to the rahab. Alcohol is about as untouchable as it was in probition. Mobster, plus others paid off are getting rich off it and it is killing people and ruining families every day.

You may want to learn to spell so someone knows what you are talking about.
