Fewer smokers is bad news for California’s budget. A major bond rating agency sounded an alarm this month, saying the state may have borrowed more than $4 billion against settlement money that might never materialize.

That's funny, at least for those of us without investments there!! Hoist with their own petard, as the bard said.

Wait, fewer smokers, I thought that is what they wanted?

Just goes to show you, better watch what you ask for!!!!

I'm sure we've all said this before, they really don't want to ban smoking, tobacco is something that can be demonized that allows the pols to overtax it...they just want the revenue...and like typical gov't agencies...after they see $$ signs they can't look behind the fact that...something costs more money, less people buy, less people who buy, means less money in the coffers.

But no fear folks, I live along the Amish community and I'm going to take a page out of their book...I'm saving up to buy a large private Island that will be for pipe smokers only...can be one big family, we can pool all the money for PAD/TAD :) !

Hopefully all these other area's are watching what's going on there and will wake up to themselves.

Speaking of which...I would really love to know how many of these anti's just so happen to be for legalizing pot.

There are no fools like self-righteous fools! What in the world did they THINK would happen when they banned smoking in their stupid little "nation"???
Basic economics....remove the product....remove the revenue! Sheeesh!

Our beloved gubment's plan to continually raise taxes on tobacco is like the joke about little kids charging $50 per cup at at their lemonade stand with the idea they only have to sell one cup. Their own greed has bit them on their arse.
