Re "Big tobacco and its money make a comeback" (Dan Morain, Feb. 9): It amazes me that cigarettes are available because of the amount of health risks that they are responsible for. Raise the tax to $5, heck 10. Maybe then people will want quit. Nothing is worse than walking around your favorite park and smelling the poison emitting from someone's mouth, especially when I am with my child.
