Kim A. Godfrey: Cigarette tax may have negative effect
Placeholder Image
Since Jan. 1, when Gov. Doyle increased the tax on cigarettes by $1 per pack, I have cut my smoking in half. I also am in the process of quitting altogether.I don't think Gov. Doyle has thought this tax increase totally through. If I do quit smoking, what if hundreds or thousands of people like me also quit?
