I was interested in what types of taxes, both upfront and also "hidden taxes" we pay to our State. 

Kind of nice to see where our money goes.  The Illegal Drug Stamp Act below has me baffled but not enough to investigate.  If anyone out there wants to enlighten me on this tax, I'll be glad to listen.
