We have the right to check your home, we believe your husband has been smuggling.

Oh yea the Sugar Act. I just can't believe this we are now getting charged for sugar!
Still charging us for that horrible war against the French and Indians.
Did you guys hear about the King's new taxes?
That up there is a stamp that will tax many things you buy, the British need money to pay for debt.
When the British Parliament enacted the Quartering Act, which required the colonists to provide housing, bedding and sustenance to British soldiers stationed in America, it was bound to cause trouble.
The writs of assistance allowed officers to search private homes to look for smuggled goods. Most colonists were mad at this law because they had no privacy.
The Sugar Act caused many problems in the American colonies, mainly because of economic problems. The Sugar Act put a three cent tax on foreign refined sugar.
You now have to pay taxes on all imported goods.
The Stamp Act required the colonists to pay taxes on a variety of goods including newspapers, legal documents, diplomas and playing cards. To prove that the tax had been paid, colonial merchants were required to use special paper
Hey! That's not fair
The colonist had to obey what ever law/Act The British government passed. The colonist were not pleased with this because they had no say.
What if I don't want to?!?
The Townshend Act forced all colonist to pay taxes on all imported goods coming into the colonies. This act also had the Colonist upset.
