Default Re: VOTE NO ON THE PACT ACT! everyone needs to sign this pettion!!!

It seems that Micheal is correct about it only applying to cigarettes an RYO products but the thing is that once something like takes effect it's used as the thin end of the wedge to restrict/ban more tobacco products. Even if I didn't love tobacco i'd be against this bill for the simple reason that putting mail order companies out of business will increase unemployment/government expenditures while cutting tax revenue at a time when the American economy is in deep trouble. Of course it's silly to think that kids buy cigarettes on line since they don't have credit cards so the bill can't reduce underage smoking but it will hurt the economy.
