The high tobacco taxes in Canada have made black market cigarettes a big criminal enterprise. That was what Dino Bravo was involved with when he was killed in an obvious hit.
At some point?  Eric Garner anyone?

Explain- I don't know Eric Garner.

The guy who was strangled to death by the cops for selling loosies without tax stamps.

look at the list of ingredients in a cigarette and compare them to the ingredients In a cigar. It's like 100 vs 2. 

I smoke cigars and have never smoked a cigarette, I stop for weeks at a time and never have an issue wanting cigars. The nicotine level in most cigars is very low compared to cigarettes or vape juice. Sure you can find strong cigars but cigars don't rely on the nicotine like cigarettes do to hook you. 

All that being said I dislike when they try and jack the price on something to discourage use. Most of that new income is going to be wasted on BS so it's not like anyone will be better for it.
