10. Please, have you seen how much difference our Cigarettes are compared to Florida?
Edited on Sat Jul-25-09 01:10 PM by sarcasmo
I am not using a Puke talking point, let's just use cigarettes for example. Marlboro runs more than two dollars less a pack in Florida, a carton here is sixty dollars while in Florida it's forty dollars. This is not a talking point it is a fact.
On edit: A survey that just came out showed we were the 41st best State to do business in, why do you think that is? Let me find the link.
Regarding gasoline, cross the State line into Indiana from Michigan and tell me who has cheaper gas. I see the tax difference every time we go south. Let me know how many smoke shops you see in Indiana selling cheap smokes.
