I hate smoking and having to breathe second hand air, even outside, but I feel sorry for smokers that have to pay for the fiasco that is the Viking stadium. They join the Minneapolis population that are helpless victims of this extortion. Watching the destruction of the political supporters of this mess is a silver lining for me.

quinneroo, the sad thing is, the revenue projections will fall short. More people will move to patches, e-cigs etc. Just like last time when they predicted a bazillion tax dollars on cig taxes, whoa.. people up and quit.

We should sue for lack of access to a drug. If Heroine addicts can get their needles and drug for free, then I should get my smokes for free. This is a addiction. A MEDICAL CONDITION, and means they should be sued for targeting us!
