NY’s futile fight against
illegal cigarettes

New York Post, by Editorial Board

Original Article

Posted By:Ribicon, 1/3/2018 12:16:09 AM

State authorities set a record in 2017 by seizing $6.6 million worth of illegal tobacco products, a $1 million jump over 2016. The 2016 seizures, in turn, marked a increase from the year before. Indeed, for each of the past three years, the state has steadily boosted inspections — and wound up grabbing more illegal products. (Snip) Illegal cigs today actually outnumber legal ones, making up 57 percent of the market. Why? Rising tobacco taxes, which have soared 190 percent since then. State and local cig taxes ($5.85 a pack, in total) are a powerful incentive for crooks: If they can get

Comments:
Easy ventures like cigarette smuggling are known avenues of funding for terrorist groups and foolishly high taxes all but guarantee such cheating, but the politicians see only one solution: more taxes.

I have seen many a car with out of states license plates stop at the 4 easy in easy out convensnce stores....3-4 passengers each go in, buy 3 cartons and place them in the trunk. Then on to the next store. I can only assume they did this from Va to NY. Big money.

I wish all the best to the bootleggers. Our nation has a long and proud history of protesting unjust taxes by avoiding them and its nice to see that´s still true.
The government is not and never has been your friend. All you are really doing is electing your own mugger.

There are no "Black Markets".

There are only Markets.

Note: The Marxists have attempted to turn the
"Market-Place of Ideas" (The University) into a
"Black Market". See how that works ?

I hope to live long enough to see the Universities purged of their fetid, rotting, craven Marxism.

It´s the only logical outcome. Same thing is going to happen in all the Weed states. I remember seeing a recent article about Colorado residents bemoaning the high price of legal pot.

$5.85 per pack would work better than Chantix(sp) or the patch, etc.
Nothing illegal could be a good thing.

Tax the bejeebers out of cigarettes to stop smoking but pretty much leave alcohol alone. Answer me a question:

Would you rather see a 21 year old get into his car with a cigarette dangling from his lips or:

A 21 year old climbing into his car while fall-down drunk?

I see smoking as long term suicide...Drunk driving as a murder in progress.

They almost had another Indian war about 10-15 year ago over cigs.
There is an Indian reservation which borders Canada, and the Indians were getting untaxed cigs from Canada and smuggling them all over the state. The police nearly started a war to stop it, but at the last minute, cooler heads prevailed.

Over tax something and people WILL smuggle it. Not ever going to change.

A former colleague got very wealthy in the Soviet Union with "black market goods". When I asked him what he sold, I was surprise when he said, "candy, gum mostly".

Candy and gum were very limited in soviet times, so he made it and sold it, became extremely wealthy and then legally emigrated to the USA.

Black markets provide goods that people want and the government doesn´t want them to have. Other than deadly and addictive drugs, mostly they are not a problem.

FTA: "State and local cig taxes ($5.85 a pack, in total) are a powerful incentive for crooks". Oh yes, and the government are the crooks. This was never about health, it´s about money and control. The war on cigarettes was a proving ground for the power of propaganda and demonizing certain segments of the population. Now that we have government involved in "health care", your choices (obesity, for example) will determine whether or not you are worthy of treatment. The NHS in the UK is already refusing treatment to smokers and the obese. Think they´ll stop there? Think again.

I no longer smoke, and one of the reasons I quit is to annoy the liberals who were taking my "tobacco settlement" taxes, that were supposed to pay for my healthcare, and diverting it to pay for the early education of criminal alien children.

A friend of mine was on the medical marijuana program, but quit because the cost to buy it legally online was 2-4 times what he could buy it on the street. Why involve government and pay their salaries with something that is none of their business?

Over taxation is supposed to be unconstitutional. Isn´t this what the famous "Boston Tea Party" was all about? It is nothing but confiscation when it reaches this exorbitant level. That is why the liquor taxes were ultimately limited- because any higher and bootlegging becomes profitable. We had a friend who lived in Mass. who was a chain smoker. She was telling us it was over a hundred bucks to buy a carton of smokes in her state. She was going through a carton and a half a week! We used to buy cigs here and send them to her for birthday and Xmas. At the time they were about $35.00 (now about $50.00) a carton here. Anytime you have such a huge disparity in prices across state lines, you can bet people are going to make some bucks on that. If someone lived in a huge welfare apartment complex, smugglers would be on every floor. Remember, cigarettes are not supposed to be purchased with EBT cards. So, Miamay would go to the "Corner´ Quickie Store, sell EBT for 50 cents on the dolla, go home and buy cigs from "travelin´"Jasmine next door for $75.00- and to Hell with that state price of $113.00 a carton- right? Cools all the way, Bay-bee!

What part of this did the Democrats running the state not understand or expect?

A teen who started a massive wildfire in Oregon has been ordered by a judge to pay nearly $37 million over the next decade. Hood River County Circuit Judge John Olson awarded the restitution totaling $36,618,330.24 to cover the costs of firefighting, repair and restoration, according to the Oregonian. (Snip) The 15-year-old boy´s lawyer had asked last week for a "reasonable and rational" penalty, calling the nearly $37 million an "absurd" amount. The restitution is solely the responsibility of the teen, and not his parents, who came from Ukraine. Judge Olson admitted it was "an extraordinary amount."

There are so few German army helicopters available for the troops that pilots have been forced to train in bright yellow civilian choppers leased from the German Automobile Club. A chronic shortage of spare parts and assorted technical woes have grounded 29 of the Bundeswehr´s 130 camouflage-green helicopters. Acute shortages of parts have also left only 39 of the Luftwaffe´s 128 Eurofighter jets combat-ready — idled along with nearly half of the armed forces´ 224 Leopard tanks and five of its six submarines. No country in the North Atlantic Treaty Organization alliance has savored the "peace dividend" as much as

Officials in Linden, North Carolina, discovered 120 gallons of liquid methamphetamine hidden inside the fuel tank of a semi truck being driven by an alleged illegal alien, reports say. Harnett County Sheriff’s officers pulled the truck over on May 19 and discovered the large amount of the liquefied drug.

A popular Spanish-language theater near Miami’s Little Havana neighborhood has been entertaining its audiences for months with a parody that would spur outrage in many other cities. One of the leading actors in the play performs in blackface.

A prejudiced California pol likely flushed whatever election hopes she had down the drain after targeting a transgender person in a restaurant bathroom. Social-media users are attacking Republican ­congressional candidate Jazmina Saavedra over her videotaped harassment of a transgender woman who used a ladies’ room at a Los Angeles Denny’s last week. (Snip) Earlier in the week, Saavedra shared a Facebook video in which she yelled at the transgender woman while the victim was inside a bathroom stall. The exchange went viral Tuesday night.

It’s 2018. One of the world’s most powerful married men had a 22-year-old intern perform oral sex on him in his office. He’s been accused of sexual assault by three other women. One claims, as is the case with so many of the men who have fallen from positions of power as a result, that he exposed himself to her (which always makes me, at least, pause and wonder why on earth so many men seem to want to do this). We know, too, that he lied about his tryst with the intern. So why is Bill Clinton still presiding over glamorous parties?

A Cambridge professor with deep ties to American and British intelligence has been outed as an agent who snooped on the Trump presidential campaign for the FBI. Multiple media outlets have named Stefan Halper, 73, as the secret informant who met with Trump campaign advisers Carter Page and George Papadopoulos starting in the summer of 2016. The American-born academic previously served in the Nixon, Ford and Reagan administrations. The revelation, stemming from recent reports in which FBI sources admitted sending an agent to snoop on the Trump camp, heightens suspicions that the FBI was seeking to entrap
