Tobacco Terrorism

In a scam as old rebates...thieves are stealing big semi trucks full of cigarettes.

Of course the tobacco companies blame this phenomena on the high taxes on cigarettes. I think they're on to something. If you could get the sales taxes off tobacco, people would stop stealing the cigarettes and we could get those smokes back in the hands of the sixteen year olds where they belong.

Anyway, you really need to keep your eyes open. This kind of crime really requires organization. You need someone who knows how to drive a really big truck. RCMP warn the public to be on the lookout for middle eastern men who enquire about learning how to drive a semi but not how to load one.

In light of these disturbing trends our tobacco terror color-coded alert has been raised from finger-yellow to bleeding lung watermelon.
