Cigarette taxes to triple Sunday


  The Legislature also passed a law that says by Sunday, smoking inside public buildings like restaurants and workplaces is not allowed.

     According to the Tennessee Department of Revenue, retailers can sell cigarettes for whatever price they want, but by law they have to give the state a cut from each pack, which will go up to 62 cents on Sunday.
    But that's just on cigarettes, not on cigars or chewing tobacco.
