Nearly all tax.


I'd bet that it's around 50% tax, at most.

In fact, here you go.

State + Federal Tax rates on cigarettes.

Dream on sunshine. See what a pack of 20 dried cabbage leaves would be. It's 95% at least and covers the cost of smoking related illness 5 times over. Assuming smoking related illness is correctly diagnosed. Which it isn't. The medical profession diagnose it so you can guess what that means.

@spendius,
Whats with you and cabbage. You're buying tobacco from a company who grows and packages it for you. You are paying for their efforts and for their company's overhead, and their profit.

Stop talking about cabbage, you're just trying to muddle the FACTS.
