    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?

    Raise the price all you want. There are some people who will still spend money on it because they want them so much. Or are just addicted.

    More people die from eating unhealthily than alcohol and cigarettes combined. They should tax fast food and other unhealthy food before doing anything else.

    I don't smoke, but I think it is unfair to tax a specific niche group of people and not the rest.
