    Some other products also subject to the milk first exemption. It isn't just high end coffee products.

    Strange exemption to this law.

    Regardless, is taxing sugar a bad thing?

    Alcohol? Tobacco? MJ when legal?

    What is the purpose behind these taxes, and when is that purpose a legitimate interest of the govt?
