  1. The State pays vendors 8 months behind schedule yet funds municipalities to determine if retailers are illegally selling cigarettes to minors.

  2. Mark, you are so right.

    Municipalities are a sham.

    They are now the enemy of the very businesses that fund their existence.

    “Serve and Protect”.

    What a joke.

    As kids, we used to make fun of the Soviets……..
