Canadian taxes on cigs not reasonable?

https://www.nsra-adnf.ca/cms/file/files/160203_map_and_table.pdf

I can't seem to understand how this is right? over 60% of the price of a cig is taxes. However things like coke, junk food, all that other garbage is barely taxed at all.

Not sure the health effects, but I would say coke and other forms of junk food are just as damaging to your health and you can get addicted. What do you guys think?

  • gas is HEAVILY taxes as well, at least in Canada. All the smokers I've met who are in their 50s have some form of cancer as a result, junk food is nothing in comparison.

  • Same in the US. That's why I go to an Indian reservation to buy tobacco. No city or state takes. Saves 40%
