Brooklyn Tobacci

Friday, February 25th, 2011

Cigarettes are freaking expensive these days, there’s no doubt. One woman in Brooklyn has grown tired of paying so much money for death sticks, so she’s started planting, growing, and harvesting her own tobacco.

They’re using the power of taxation to coerce behavior. That’s not what taxation is supposed to be for.

Yeah, there are a lot of things taxation isn’t supposed to be used for. Still gets used for them, though. Any over/under’s for how many days it’ll take for this to be illegal?
