If you're relying on credit then lottery tickets is not a wise purchase.

Does that apply to those who buy cigarettes while in the "poor house " ?

I was damn near floored the other day when a chap in front of me paid just shy of $14.00 for a pack of smokes. Unbelievable.

Of course our government supports the sale of cigarettes as they count on the tax revenue received form these killer cigs. Then they put out ads purporting to encourage folks to stop smoking. What hypocrisy.

Look around and see if you can see their next cash cow as smokers die off and they cease manufacture of smokes. Beer? Liquor? There has to be something they can apply a sin tax to.
