  • Vrai ou faux : la France est-elle le pays qui taxe le plus les cigarettes ?

En effet, sur un paquet de tabac qui coûte 10 euros, 85% du prix part dans les caisses de l'État. Ce qui est trop élevé par rapport à la majorité de nos voisins européens avec la Belgique taxant à 78% et le Luxembourg à 69%. Cependant, nous ne sommes pas les champions, mais nous sommes sur le podium avec la Finlande et l'Estonie qui taxent les cigarettes plus que nous.
