Default Re: Its tobacco, dammit!

I wonder if the word tobacco is avoided in order to skirt taxes? I know a lot of ethnic retailers get a lot of stuff shipped from home, including food, hookah pipes, cds, etc. I wonder if the lack of tobacco acknowledgment allows them to claim molasses as some sort of food stuff instead of tobacco, which would allow them to pay less taxes.

Just a theory.
