Life / Smokers in Poland..... price rise. [47]

As an example L&M Lights have just gone up from 6.50 to 8.05 zloty.

I'm glad I just decided to give it up :)

Will Poland add what we call a special "sin tax" to smoking and alcohol products (to help pay for the care people require after overusing these over their lifetime),

taxes are about 70% of cigarette's prize .

Maybe some of this texes go to national health service? We're talking about serious money, so how can you say that smokers cost whole society?

revenue from tax off smokers is about 1billion a year...a quarter of that is spent on smoking related health do the maths..

My calculator say, that there is still 3/4 left :p These taxes are bigger only because of EU directives to level tabaco prices, not because of health problems related to smoking costs increase.

personally I think we should put a big tax on fast food because fatties cost the health service even more!

Agree!!! And get a tax discount when joining the gym ;)

To finish - a wee quote from Hancock:
And you people should sue McDonnalds, cos they f**ked you up :)
