Some statistics lie, but others tell the blunt truth:

Tax on a Pack of Cigarettes in:

Denmark —————————————> $3.88
Norway ———————————–> $3.45
U.K. ———————————> $3.27
Sweden —————————-> $2.80
Germany ———————–> $2.26
Canada ——————–> $1.95
France ——————–> $1.94
Holland ——————-> $1.82
Australia —————–> $1.67
Japan ————-> $1.32
Italy ————-> $1.31
U.S. —–> .56

I came upon this while filing some old stuff — the figures are dated January 17, 1995, and will have changed somewhat, with currency fluctuations if nothing else. For more up-to-date statistics, and a whole bunch of other stuff, try The Smoking Cessation Location.
