    That is just plain crazy! I picked up my smoking addiction in the military. I used to buy my cigarettes by the carton at the AAFES stores, dirt cheap. Military discount on cancer sticks, but no e-cigs??? Crazy!

    Well, from what I read while researching for this story, the discounts are not so big any more. They are limited to discounting tobacco to no more than 5% below the going local price. Alcohol (which has no immediate deadly effects, right?) is limited to 10% below going local price.

    I guess local governments were tired of losing tax revenue, even from people serving our nation. Only reason I can see to impose a price floor like that exclusively on AAFES stores.
