I have been making (stuffing tubes) my own smokes for 8 years, and the tax has forced me to go to a pipe tobacco cut which is harder to stuff. I cam currently looking at growing tobacco next year.

Re: How this gov't destroyed a few hundred businesses and jobs a week ago and you never heard a thing.
anyone know the name/manufacturer of these machines?

It seems to me that the federal law would not apply if the smokes were not exported from the state. A simple waiver signed by the purchaser that he/she was producing for their own consumption and would not transport across state lines would suffice and place the operation firmly under state jurisdiction.

Looks like a bluff to me.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 19880659


RYO manufactures the machines. I'm not a smoker, but went in one of these shops with my girlfriend and immediately saw the income potential.

Not anymore.

It's not a bluff. The stores have closed.

this has nothing to do with taxes or healthcare.

this is simply a monopolistic move by big tobacco.

tobacco by itself will NOT cause cancer. they use phosphate fertilizers for tobacco. phosphate fertilizers contain uranium, fluoride, and cadmium. these elements accumulate in tobacco. smoking any radioactive plant will give you cancer.

Re: How this gov't destroyed a few hundred businesses and jobs a week ago and you never heard a thing.
Yep. I know of 3 of those stores that all closed up recently in this area. They were all thriving, too, from what I'd seen. I've been a pipe smoker for years, but my brother smokes cigs, and he'd buying those RYOs for about a year.

Now, he's back to buying the retail shit and spending twice as much on them.
 Quoting: Evil_Twin


Boyyy I can tell the difference with the big brands too...they taste 20x more harsh to me...and yes the cost is easily twice as much...all taxes.

You know what this schip program is about?...it's basically putting kids on medicaid that wouldn't normally qualify...as it was?...it was 200% poverty level...in NJ for instance they have it at 350% poverty level..in NY?...they want it to go to 400%...that's $82,000 year for a family of 4...82k a year?....that's "poor"?...

They just don't get it in DC..."You want us to pay for everything?...ok here comes a tax then, assholes"...uuuummm...how about CUTTING SOME SPENDING??...that gets treated like it's a foriegn concept.

The more they can spend, the more they can control, the more they can control the more they can create need by destroying self reliance, the more need they can create, the more control they can exert.

If these fucks had their way we'd all have little jobs doing a govt approved activity or working directly for the govt making an approved amount of money. If you want a business?...sure you can do it...as long as it's a govt approved little business doing a govt approved activity making a govt approved amount of profit etc etc...all good little worker bees toiling for the common good living in the hive and not making trouble...there won't be anymore skyrockets of success and anyone breaking out of their approved "class"...

Nah...there's some approved amount of tobacco you are "Allowed" to grow...but it's a real bitch...won't grow everywhere and even picking it can make you sick if you don't use gloves...so you know there is going to be some hazard if you live in a fairly populated area there...and it's a bitch to "cure" it properly too...it could be done, but it's not easy at all.

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1215807


I grew a small crop about 3 years ago and the only problem i had with it was the drying,you have ta keep it at or below 70% humidity and heat or it will mold.

I strung up some wire in my green-house and feed it on the wire but couldnt control the 70/70 so my baccy went bad with mold.

Took me a while ta learn the seeding as well,baccy seeds lay on the top of soil and you have ta keep the bottom seed pots warm and top covered(dark) for them ta sprout.

Its a big pain in the ass!
I was gonna try and grow about an acre but whats the point when i dont have a proper way of controlin the dryin?

It won't matter if they come up short, they'll just hit some other non-hardened target...if they came in over?..they'd just piss the money away someplace else...ooooh let's make a turtle tunnel!....how much?...20 million?...well I got that much in the sofa cushions in my senate office...as long as I like you...and you donate to my campaign...

NO ONE sticks up for smokers except for "Big tobacco" behind the scenes and that is only to use us as geese that spit up golden eggs. This was a win/win for big tobacco and govt tax/control so it got done and breezed right on through. Just yet another low hanging fruit they could swipe and enjoy and few would give a shit.

Oh boy you have a lot of time on your hands...

Usually when I put a title in a thread I'm about to post, it will automatically find a thread like it and I won't post the thread.

So when I posted that thread, nothing came up when I put the title in the subject line.

As you can see I found the error later and never once bumped the thread nor replied to it because for some reason it showed up at the bottom after the fact.
