Re: 156% tax hike on shisha in the US?
I have always thought that the taxes on tobacco were crazy. If you buy a pack of cigarettes from a brick and mortar business you are taxed 3 times. First you are taxed for your income, secondly you are taxed a state tax per pack or per carton, then to top it off you are charged a sales tax. The sales tax is the messed up part, because you are charged sales tax on the total cost of the pack or carton. So you are taxed on a tax! Glad I quite smoking cigarettes.
