What do you think about the state’s increased cigarette tax, which took effect Monday?
Asked at Massachusetts Street on July 2, 2002
“I don’t care about the cigarette tax. Maybe it’ll keep people from smoking.”
“I think anything we can do to deter smoking is good. This seems like a reasonable step.”
“I think it’s good, but I don’t know that it’s an effective deterrent for people to stop smoking. It’s an addiction, and people will continue no matter what the cost.”
“I don’t smoke, but it’s high for those who do smoke. The way it’s getting now, there is no place to smoke anyway.”
