If you live in North Carolina PLEASE call Gov. Beverly Perdue (919)733-4240 and let her know that you oppose the proposed $1.00 per pack Tobacco "sin" Tax. If you would rather send an e-mail go here

Tobacco may be an easy target right now but, who will be the cash cow for the government when the tobacco companies are taxed out of buisness? Coke? Pepsi? They are not healthy for you. Fast Food? Certianly not healthy. Cakes? Cookies? Snacks? They lead to obesity.

Considering the unemployment alone, NC's rate will go into the double digits from this tax alone. There are several Large tobacco companies in NC and the effect of the $1.00 tax on just one of these companies alone will result in the loss of 50,000 jobs.
