Default Re: Tobacco Journal article about hookah

[FONT=Verdana]That is new import tax in Canada. Shisha was marked as a pipe tobacco before but enough cases starting coming in and I guess we got what we asked for. Shisha is now marked as a "manufactured tobacco containing nontobacco products." The other problem is that tobacco and alcohol tax is already so high in Canada that this tax on shisha really is not that bad or out of the norm here. I hear it is worse in Europe so I am not going to complain too much. Only thing is that the tax is pretty high right now the only place it can go is up, they never lower the taxes on tobacco and alcohol.[/FONT]
