Crazy Tax

Schizophrenics like to self medicate with tobacco - a LOT.

Schizophrenia and Tobacco

And they are among the heaviest of tobacco users. So maybe we need to call the tobacco tax a Schizophrenia Tax.

If we can raise tobacco taxes high enough maybe there will come a day when only crazy people will pay taxes.

Inspired by this Matt Yglesias piece.
