Mississippi to Auction confiscated cigarettes:

Mississippi announced this week it will hold a public auction on October 27th to sell about 1 million cartons of confiscated cigarettes and small cigars seized at a Tupelo warehouse facility earlier this year.
Presumably this is to recover / compensate the State for potential lost tax revenues?
What price will they sell for and how does this sit with other manufacturers and distributors in the state of Mississippi who have fully complied with the law and regulations? This sale undermines their efforts and fails to reward their honesty and integrity.
What do you think?

Seems to me like the State of Mississippi has gone wild. Will they be opening up a store in the near future. How is this right?
