    These punitive taxes serve no purpose other than to bring more money into the coffers of the treasury of the county--whence do they go? It is the same in all countries--we need money, we tax the drinkers of alcohol and smokers of tobacco. And what is bidi and ra? Oh, cannot touch them because they are long-standing traditions in the Island's traditions.

    CIGARETTE SMOKING IS AGAINST TO ALL RELIGION.

    It doesn't increase by 10 because government is fear of stopping it and this is only piracy.
