If our state budget passes as currently proposed, it may have some unintended consequences.

The plan calls for a temporary one percent increase in the state sales tax rate, raising the cigarette tax by 10 cents a pack, a 5-cent tax increase on a six-pack of beer and higher taxes on wine and liquor based on their alcohol content.

Dont drink dont smoke – what do you do?
Dont drink dont smoke – what do you do?
Subtle innuends follow
There must be something inside hes hiding.
