The article presents information on the taxation issues concerning Moist Smokeless Tobacco in the U.S. Convenience stores must present alternatives to excise tax increases to prevent legislators from reducing profits from the category. This was stated by industry expert David Bishop. He also said that politicians believe it to be an easy target within the other tobacco products category to pass tax hikes because of the "sin product" that has a small consumer base.
