What would Bill Hobbs say about this - Tennessee imposes income tax on sale of Illegal Drugs

The Bristol paper has this AP report that says: "Beginning Saturday, a new law will require drug dealers to pay taxes on the drugs they sell."

In fact, here is what Bill Hobbs said, which included the following:

"While I'm generally opposed to tax increases, I would heartily support the legislature raising the excise tax on the sale of illegal drugs to 100 percent. They also ought to require drug-pushers to charge sales tax, and penalize them if they don't."
