Many are asking why our law makers can’t file a bill imposing much higher tax to cigarette companies in the country. You can’t blame the people from thinking that maybe millions of money are given away to lobby the filing of this bill. Many believe that if the price of cigarettes will be raised, people will refrain or even stop smoking. Some cigarette producers in other countries already imposed sin tax to cigarette where like montecristo cigars will cost you $163 per pack and $11 almost 50 pesos per stick. I don’t think an ordinary laborer can afford to smoke in this scenario.
