A single-projectile round designed to be fired from a shotgun. The term is often misused to refer to an ordinary bullet. Slugs are often much larger than conventional bullets. While ordinary bullets larger than .50 caliber are illegal or heavily restricted in many jurisdictions, slugs this large are not because they are classified as shotgun shells. Slugs also have the advantage that one can carry a single gun and use it as both a shotgun and a rifle.
Slug rounds are great for hunting deer.

A sin tax is a tax beyond normal sales tax on certain items that are thought to be harmful. The most common example is the tax on tobacco.

The new sin tax on tobacco is forcing some people to quit.
