    I used to be fairly ambivalent about vice taxes, but the more I think about it, the more I realize how disingenuous it is for politicians to suggest that they pass them out of real concern for the health of their constituents, or to actually try to reduce usage.

    It's like making police departments reliant on speeding tickets for their budgets.  Would they really then want people to stop speeding?
