To Do or Not To Do, Should Tax on Cigarettes and Alcoholic Drinks be increased?
Cigarette smoking and alcoholic drinking could cause major health problems like cancer, liver cirrhosis, etc. By increasing their taxes, their price would also increased hoping this would decreased smokers and alcoholic drinkers, but is it good to the economy?
