I applaud the libertarians’ lawsuit against the Friendship Heights outdoor smoking ban (“Puff Daddies,” 2/16). However, what they should really go after are the punitive taxes levied on smokers. These taxes hit mostly low-income people.

It’s ironic that the groups supporting these cigarette taxes are usually in favor of legalizing marijuana.
