Default Re: Proposed Bill to Raise Federal Tax on Pipe Tobacco

PS: It's not even clear that this tobacco tax would also be applicable to hookah tobacco since you can make 150g of hookah tobacco from about 15-20 grams of dry/pipe tobacco.

The weight of the tobacco in the hookah tobacco is only a tiny percentage. The molasses makes up most of the weight that you see printed on the tobacco boxes.
