Ten cents? That won't motivate anyone make the trip across the state line. Now lower it by a buck, and you will need traffic cops at every border crossing.
What is most interesting is that someone in New England had the brilliant thought that lower taxes means more sales. (Too bad they quoted the socialist from Chicago who throws a wet blanket on the idea.)

I’d imagine that he can’t fathom lowering taxes of any kind - and the fact that it’s the tax on the evil weed just makes it a hundred times more ghastly for him...

NH my state, needs to lower the cig tax more and do the same with the tax on booze.

Winston's cost $ 4.80 a pack in New Hampshire. They are over $ 8.00 a pack in Massachusetts. I haven't bought a pack of smokes in Mass for over 2 years.

It would definitely entice a lot of bulk buyers though. A lot of people in New York City were known to drive to Virginia and back (paying out the rear end in tolls and gas to do so) because they saved a ton of money buying smokes in bulk.
Also keep in mind that NH imposes no sales tax, and since those states are small and quick to drive through, it will encourage a lot of people who are smokers, and who need to buy expensive durable goods and bring them home, to do so in NH.
