Light on up!

My friend Hunter sent this story along to me and other folks and now I pass it to you....

If you're a smoker plagued by pangs of conscience for supporting Big Tobacco, these are the cigarettes for you. The Squaxin tribe of Washington (pop. 850) is starting up its own cigarette company, "Complete," to "diversify its income for tribal members." They will be able to sell their brand at an extremely low price compared to mainstream cigarettes, $16 for a carton of 10 packs, because the tribe is not obligated to pay the taxes paid by tobacco companies.
