This Bill does nothing to stop sales to minors.What idiot thinks thaat our 14 year olds are using their Credit Cards to order cigs,out of state,to be shipped by mail to their home? We certainly need to clean out the idiots that support this sort of elimination of our freedoms. We are now going to be forced to trade within what ever state we live.This elinates all market competition. It also assures that there is NO OVERSIGHT on individual states tax rates. By this law you will be required to pay what ever that state can get.$2-3/pack.This is same as TEA TAX.
This will be Obama's and the Democrat's 2nd TAX increase in 7 months.This bill does very little to stop the foreign import,but everything about buuying somewhere else in the country. America is losing freedom inch by inch,state by state,day by day and some applaud this notion.Soon you will be sorry,but it will be to late.
