Why Ban When You Can Tax?

So all this talk about banning incandescent light bulbs in California is really annoying me. I can just see it now -- Californians making a run for the Nevada border to buy their fix of cheap light bulbs. A much easier and more efficient remedy is to simply levy a large tax on incandescent light bulbs. The revenues from this special tax could then be applied to subsidize the price of more expensive (but more efficient) florencent bulbs.

And in case you think this is crazy and without precedence, it's essentially what the cigarette tax does.
