In this article,
Lawmakers in Olympia, WA have approved a 75% tax that I will call EXTORTION on the e-cigarette industry. Thats a great way to push a business out of state that will more than likely be generating tens of billions of dollars within a few short years. Way to go Olympia.
I left a comment on their website earlier tonight and they censored it. Hmmm, why would that be? Well here is my comment.
I don’t understand how they can arbitrarily tax e-cigs. There is absolutely no proof of harm to users or bystanders. Does this mean they can tax aspirin because people want to get rid of a headache now too? Cigarettes are taxed based on the scientific proof of harm they do to people’s health. What is their excuse here? Hearsay and maybe’s? Is this LEGAL?
Didn’t the colonies split from England because of oppressive taxation? What the hell have we become? Time to start tossing these greedy bums out of those cushy taxpayer paid offices and elect representatives that listen to the citizens instead of thinking for themselves.
Kudos To Rep. Cary Condotta for standing up for vapers rights. Vapers vote, we are socially connected electronically and we remember.
I hate censorship. How can we have a discussion if you sensor our comments @Mynorthwest?
