Cigarette Taxes Don't Work

On today’s Intellectual Redneck: Cigarette taxes will not curb tobacco use. As it becomes more of a status symbol, more kids will take up smoking. Cigarettes will also become the property of the rich, same as expensive cigars. Poor people will buy cheap cigarettes, cigars, and snuff. They will huddle outdoors in the cold, and workplace illnesses will continue to rise. More rich people will take up recreational smoking, and insurance rates will continue to climb. Mark my words.

We’ll be live blogging from the Masters all week at Intellectual Redneck .Com!  Our prediction?  Phil Mickelson.
