MN Tries and Fails to Welch on Cartel With Big Tobacco

| No Comments


A judge struck down Minnesota's new 75-cent-a-pack charge on cigarettes Tuesday. [WSJ link requires subscription]. In another after-shock following the shameful interstate compact between the states' AG's and the tobacco companies, the Minnesota state judge recognized that the state's new "health impact fee" was in reality a new tax meant to change the distribution of booty as between Big Brother and Big Tobacco. Greed has its limits!
