The American Lung Association of Maine today presented the 2009 report card, which grades states for tobacco prevention, protection from secondhand smoke, helping people quit smoking and cigarette taxes.
The Lung Association's Ed Miller says the falling grades translate into premature deaths and preventable illnesses. Miller says the Legislature should increase the cigarette tax to further discourage smoking

Like they haven't hiked up our tobacco prices in Maine, enough; Some moron now thinks they should tax it more to "discourage" (Read: Punish) adult smokers from perusing their leisurely habits.
