MY TAKE: So basically they are correlating the data between the tax rates for tobacco products and the smoking rates over the course of time. You can take any two statistics and link them in some way but it doesn't mean one is influencing the other. Taxation is never the answer, it will just make people fork over more cash until they can't afford to smoke anymore but if that's true they also can't afford necessities like rent and food.
