Re: 14.50 per pack for cigs in NYC
I don't see where the Problem is. Even 14.50 is a Joke its better for you, your environment and your health to STOP smoking at all. ASAP

Nicotine is messing with your brain, and tar is also not very healthy for your lungs.

I once read if you stop smoking before the age of 35 you can minmize the damage done to your body. But the older you get and the more you smoke the more it is like digging your own grave.
And on top of that you sponsor the government with your taxes and the tobacco industry with your money.

Stop now or at least minimize it as good as you can.

Good luck.tomato

Re: 14.50 per pack for cigs in NYC
it's now $13.45 for a pack of 25cigs at the store where I am at. (Ontario)

In 2009 the presidents of Imperial tobacco company & also MacDonalds tobacco company (two of the biggest canadian tobacco companies) said they only receive $3.50 a pack.

The rest is all tax money that goes into the governments pockets.
So do the math , that's $10.00 tax on every single pack of 25cigs.

A carton of 8 packs of 25cigs (total 200cigs) costs around $89.00

It's pure robbery.

Solution::: Go see the indians on the reserve & get a case of 50 cartons (total 10,000cigs) for $420

Just dont get caught, because then the government will seize your house & vehicles.

I find the indian cigs taste more like american tobacco flavor than the canadian tobacco flavor.

Re: 14.50 per pack for cigs in NYC
I smoke a pipe. I never inhale the smoke, the tobacco I use has never seen chemical additives or pesticides. I grow about half of the tobacco I use in my blends myself. Last I checked, it is legal for anyone to grow tobacco in the U.S. for their own use.

I used to smoke cigarettes. I had to quit them. They were killing me and I could notice the strain they where having on my body. Interestingly enough, there is little to no valid evidence that pipe smoking in the way I do (never inhale) is harmful. In fact, many pipe smokers like myself actually outlive non-smokers.

Now my grandmother smoked a pipe in much the way I do, and it did eventually kill her. They contributed her death as possibly being complicated by her smoking indoors. And my family buried her at the young age of 98 years. So I am reminded of the dangers of smoking. She could of had another 2-3 vibrant years....
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 29423387


My Aunt lived to 102,my grandmother until she was 98, they both smoked none filtered when I was young, I think my aunt switched to filters when she was 90 something, of the dozens of people from the previous generation of my family , NONE of then died from Lung cancer or emphysema.
I did have an Uncle that was killed by asbestosis when he was 80+ but he never smoked.

Re: 14.50 per pack for cigs in NYC
14.50$ ???
are you serious?
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 25701329


The U.S. federal government [central government] puts a huge tax on cigarettes [some other tobacco products like cigars, cigarillos, chew, dip, snus are taxed much less]. Individual state governments put an additional tax. There's a POS [point of sale] tax, and some municipalities like NYC have the right to add their own tax, and they do.

Where I live in Boston, name brand cigarettes can cost anywhere from around 6 dollars to 8-10 dollars a pack for the real foo-foo brands. But, you can but these things called 'Little Cigars' which are cigarettes wrapped in tobacco sheet product rather than paper, and are a little heavier than cigarettes,but have a filter and are roughly the same size as cigarettes, at around 2-2.50 a pack. You can also get tobacco products online from Indian reservations [tribal land] very cheaply, because they are semi-autonomous territory inside the United States. Roll your own is also very cheap.

There's also a big black market in cigarettes in NYC and elsewhere.

LOL.

This is literally impossible. Only if the government clamps down on weed is when it will get more expensive. Which they are not. But they are coming down on cigarettes hard, hence the high prices.

yes they're very restricted in certain ways like that,
if you go once in a blue moon & buy something its not a big deal to them
but if they see you buying there constantly thats where they step in - it's our mafia government - they want tax on everything you buy from the res because they figure your selling it all 1/2 price once you get off the reserve if your going there that often.
Government cant tax the indians but they sure as hell want there $10 tax on every 25cigs a white canadian man smokes.
