Sin Taxes

Cigarettes and alcohol have special taxes - because they're bad for us. But, do sin taxes actually keep people from indulging in bad habits, or do they just help society profit from otherís addictions?

If itís legal to smoke, gamble, drink alcohol and even lattes, why should we be punished for that? What sins do you think should be taxed and why?
