Perspective: Your comments on the State Cigarette Tax

Viewer responses to the WIS Perspective by order of most recent to least recent. Only responses signed with names will be posted. Flamed (all capital letters), one-word responses and live links will not be posted.

  • JH, Sumter, SC
    I agree that the tax on cigarettes should be raised, but more than 30 cents. Also, the tax on adult beverages should be raised an equal amount. If you raise it on one, raise it on both. The funds raised should be returned to the people as a refund on the state income tax or state and county property tax.

  • TD,
    Whether you a smoker or non-smoker, you should be against any kind of tax increase. Also, what happened to the millions awarded to SC from the tobacco lawsuit several years ago? If this legislation is really about urging people to quit smoking, is there any cessation programs included?
