NYC's high cigarette taxes are  causing massive smuggling of tobacco products into the city reports this story in the NY Post. Imagine that! It always amazes me that the nanny-staters are amazed by this. WTF did they think would happen? People would just ante up or quit? Politicians like the tax because it brings in more dollars for them to spend. But they never figure on the push-back behavior.
