You're exactly right. I

You're exactly right. I agree that teachers should make more money; but, it is stupid to single out a group and force them to pay for what the state cannot afford. Furthermore, most people who have been smoking for a while are going to keep on smoking even if it does cost more. And to add to the point about the lottery...where is the lottery money going? As an education major at UNCW, I haven't seen any improvements in the funding of public schools since the lottery has been in place. Also, UNCW gets less affordable every year, while financial aid gets more impossible for me to get every year. So maybe if they would use the lottery for what it was intended, the cigarette tax increase would not have been proposed.
