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?

Far from ground zero in the Trump administration´s crackdown on illegal immigration along the southern border, US Customs and Border Protection checkpoints on highways in Maine and New Hampshire are catching the eye of civil liberties groups.

Italy is seeking to have seven boats carrying roughly 1,000 migrants needing rescue off Libya taken back to North Africa, according to a Spanish aid group. Proactiva Open Arms, which has rescued thousands of migrants in the Mediterranean, said the Italians want the Libyan coast guard to conduct the rescues and return the migrants. Proactiva said in a tweet that Italian coast guard authorities who coordinate rescues sent out advisories to all ships in the area but told the aid group: ´We don´t need your help.´ In a tweet on Sunday, hard-line interior minister Matteo Salvini said: ´It´s right that the Libyan

Sorry, we murdered the wrong guy.

The boycott-Trump movement has resurged. Shannon Coulter, a brand and digital strategist, started the #GrabYourWallet hashtag in October 2016 to encourage people seeking a way to take concrete action against Donald Trump to boycott companies — large and small — that do business with his family. As a result, brands such as Nordstrom, Jet.com, and Gilt dropped Ivanka Trump´s fashion line last year. While Coulter has remained steadfast in her quest to encourage the other 62 retailers, nonprofits, and even a movie produced by Harvey Weinstein to ditch Trump products, the issue has peaked once more among consumers and
