North Carolina Unlikely to Raise Cigarette Tax

When Virginia raised its cigarette excise tax last week, Vice Squad and others asked if North Carolina and Kentucky, the two states that will have the lowest cigarette taxes following the Virginia hike, would follow suit. For North Carolina, the answer seems to be in, and it is...not this year. No word on cigarette taxes from Kentucky that I have found, but the fact that at least 14 Kentucky public high schools teach tobacco growing has raised a bit of a stir recently.
