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 13-year-old girl in Alabama was beheaded because she saw her Sinaloa Cartel-associated granny stabbed to death by drug traffickers, authorities have said. Mariah Lopez, 13, and her grandmother Oralia Mendoza, 49, were killed on June 4 in Moon Cemetery outside of Huntsville, Alabama, prosecutors revealed in court on Thursday. The new details in the case came in a hearing for 26-year-old Yoni Aguilar, who along with 34-year-old Israel Palomino is charged with two counts each of capital murder in the slayings. At the hearing, investigators testified that the grandmother Mendoza had ties to the Sinaloa Cartel,

Please send your thoughts and Amtrak prayers for Paul Ryan as news emerges that his car has been devoured by a family of hungry woodchucks, a sharp-toothed member of the marmot family also known as a groundhog. The vandalism took place while Ryan was in Washington, and had left his Chevy Suburban parked at his mother’s house in Wisconsin over the winter. A family of woodchucks made a home in the chassis and gnawed their way through the wiring. (Snip) Ryan hasn’t actually driven the car for three years, as he has a security detail and is chauffeured around.

Her fake terminal cancer bought her two years — in prison. A wacko who tricked an entire Westchester community into believing she had terminal cancer was sentenced Friday for using her bogus affliction to scam people out of more than $50,000. Vedoutie Hoobraj, who was known as Shivonie Deokaran, even duped her boyfriend and two sons into helping her raise money off her phony terminal leukemia between 2014 and 2016. The cash flowed in through GoFundMe pages — and even a fund-raiser organized by her son’s teammates on the Ardsley High School football team. Prosecutors said more than 400 people

The gloves are off in the race for New York lieutenant governor. Incumbent Kathy Hochul slammed Democratic primary rival Jumaane Williams for having "not consistently supported" abortion rights in a web video ad released Thursday. “With President Trump attacking New York every day we must fight back. His recent Supreme Court nominee could end Roe v Wade and a woman’s right to choose. Cynthia Nixon’s running mate Mr. Williams has been socially conservative and has not consistently supported a woman’s right to choose,” Hochul said.

Migrants have threatened to kill the coast guard crews that rescued them if they take them back to Libya. The Italian coast guard ship - the Diciotti - carrying the migrants docked in Sicily earlier this week. But has since been refused permission to disembark its 67 passengers after two of them were accused of threatening their rescuers. Interior minister Matteo Salvini said he will not let the migrants off until there is clarity over what happened after an Italian commercial tugboat rescued them over the weekend. Italy´s transport minister said some migrants made death threats against the crew.

The Trump administration said Thursday that nearly half of the children ages 5 and under who were separated from grown-ups at the U.S. border can´t be reunited with their parents, mostly because many of the adults are violent criminals – and some lied about being the minors´ parents. President Donald Trump had claimed Tuesday that illegal immigrants and human traffickers were ´using children´ to manipulate America´s immigration system and make it easier for adults to enter the U.S. without papers and remain there. Of the 103 minors in the youngest age group, the administration has reunited 57 with parents, but the other

Trenton, N.J. — New Jersey set aside $2.1 million to help immigrants facing deportation in the state, money that advocates say will go a long way in helping but still falls short of the estimated cost of legal representation. Democratic Gov. Phil Murphy and the Democrat-controlled Legislature signed off on the new spending this month as part of a recently adopted $37.4 billion fiscal year 2019 budget just as the federal government fell short of a deadline to reunite families separated under a federal zero-tolerance immigration policy.

Talk about putting the “p” in “protest.” George Lopez, an outspoken and frequent critic of President Donald Trump, pretended to urinate on the POTUS’ Hollywood Walk of Fame star on Tuesday. Clutching a small water bottle, Lopez, 57, greeted fans before squeezing the bottle over the star from his own crotch area, perhaps in reference to the elusive “pee tape” Trump was rumored to have back in 2017. The comedian even included a small shake for effect, much to the delight of onlookers and fans nearby. Once he was tapped out of water, he told his crew, “Alright, let’s go.”

The government’s citizenship agency issued new guidelines this week that will make it much tougher for many of the Central Americans streaming into the U.S. to claim asylum. Asylum officers at U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services were instructed to make asylum-seekers prove not only that they were specifically targeted in their home countries, but that their governments either condoned the persecution or were so indifferent that they might as well have been complicit. That undercuts the standard argument given by many of the migrants making their way north from Honduras, El Salvador and Guatemala, who describe dangerous neighborhoods and rough home lives

Prince Charles and Prince William reportedly ‘snubbed’ the US President during his visit to Britain - leaving the Queen to meet Donald Trump alone at Windsor Castle. The royal father and son apparently shared their desire to not take part in the arrangements during informal discussions regarding the president’s four-day tour. Trump’s trip was not a state visit and so only the Queen greeted the president and his wife Melania. However even on working trips dignitaries expect to see more members of the royal family than only the Queen.

The indictment Friday of 12 Russian military officers for the election hacks against the DNC and Hillary Clinton’s campaign lends a surprising new detail to the 2016 election interference timeline: The Kremlin’s hackers apparently still maintained a foothold in the DNC’s network four months after the Democrats announced that they’d locked the intruders out. Until today, the story of the DNC hack ended promptly on June 14, 2016, when the Democrats went public with the intrusion in the pages of the Washington Post, and Crowdstrike, the security firm hired to respond to the breach, published a detailed technical account.

Anyone who has ever been to a recycling plant is invariably surprised at how dirty and nasty America’s favorite green activity really is. Trucks dump the material on a long conveyor belt, where a few dozen people pick through by hand what is supposed to be recyclable material, but more and more often is just plain old dirty trash. The recyclables used to be worth something more than bragging rights about liberal moral superiority.

Americans are encouraged to embrace diversity and be culturally sensitive to those who have flouted our laws and invaded our nation. Meanwhile, illegal aliens arriving in America have no such requirement. Instead, trespassing tribes relocate, and when they do, rather than assimilate, they transfer habits and activities indigenous to the countries from whence they migrated. Thus, Americans suffer from illnesses that are easily traceable to third-world bathroom habits (TWBH) and lack of hygiene in the developing world. It´s not news that illegals work in restaurants as food-handlers. These restaurant workers migrate from

The left-wing terrorist organization that calls itself Antifa is “freaking out” over a proposed law that would enhance penalties for anyone who “injures, oppresses, threatens, or intimidates any person” while wearing a disguise or mask. Throughout our country, and for a number of years now — and primarily because the establishment media fantasizes about, promotes, enflames and approves of the violence committed against the right (naturally, HuffPo opposes the unmasking law) — Antifa has been allowed to run rampant, committing countless acts of violence against everyday, peaceful supporters of President Donald Trump.
