Gee, good old "sin" tax. Isn't it great that there are still "bad" guys out there who participate in horrible vices. Where would we be without the smokers, gamblers, lotto players, imbibers, not to mention the "johns" who patronize the tax-paying prostitutes in Nevada. These guys are responsible for supplying a good portion of the income various states acquire to fund activities such as education and health.
Just imagine if the propaganda to eliminate these bad habits succeeded! We'd have to find an alternative tax to replace monies lost with all that good behavior!
