New York smokers

May want to find out if they sell Astroglide in 55 gallon drums.

The Legislature was considering Gov. David Paterson's $1.60 increase in the state cigarette tax that's now $2.75 per pack. That would increase the cost of cigarettes in New York state from about $7.60 a pack to $9.20. In New York City, which has its own $1.50 tax, the price could jump to near $11. Paterson's bill would also double the tax on chewing tobacco and many other tobacco products while finally taxing little cigars as much as cigarettes.

BTW, it sounds like they're hurting bad enough on budget to try and shake down the reservations...I hope the Natives fight like hell.

Or better yet, PA should drop its taxes on cigs so we can build a bunch of shops along the NY/PA border, hell, we could do that now as long as the short bus all-stars in Harrisburg don't fuck it up.  Hmmm...
