I quit 4 months ago. Not because of the money though. I would have paid $20 a pack if I had to. I only quit so I could breathe again. I loved smoking.

Do they? Or do they know something about smoking that you don't.
Japan and Greece have the highest % of smokers by population in the world and also have the lowest incidence of cancer, heart disease and high blood pressure, don't you find that a little curious ?

So? Isn't this capitalism at its finest? Charge whatever the market will bear? Obviously people are still buying them, otherwise we wouldn't be reading this whiny-ass post.

Buying for personal use on the reserve is legal I think, in Ontario. It's only illegal to sell them (or move them over borders)
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 17114980


maybe if you only buy 1 carton at a time or something like that?? im not sure - I know tourists passing thru can buy a couple packs or cartons no prob,,
but usually any white man who does not live on the reserve will get busted for "contraband cigarettes" as soon as he leaves the reserve with the cigs,, happens all the time around here
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 28920401

I bet 50 years from now, people will be secretly growing grade-A strains of tobacco to be smoked and sold in secret while they demonize weed as some common, chemical laden cancer source and marijuana growers will hve deep pockets and run their governments.

It's not the substance that is "evil". What's truly evil is the machine that manipulates mass opinion that make these products seem desirable, despicable, cool, rebelious, hippy or whatever else emotional label people adhere to.

Hehe yes they do sell in the provinces. I'm not much of a cigarette smoker but brands like champion, winsboro and fortune are pretty much "desperation smokes" that people won't smoke unless they have run out of options or money. They say the best cigarettes here are the winston lights.

Re: 14.50 per pack for cigs in NYC
I roll my own, it's roughly $10.00 a carton. I'm sure they'll eventually find a way to start taxing that more too. But for now, it's the way to go. I was going to quit a couple of years ago, but when they started the crackdown, I decided to keep smoking out of spite. F*%K THEM!

I found it funny, when I was Christmas shopping for my daughter a billfold, I saw a ton of those old school cigarette cases. The ones with the lighter holder and change purse, haven't seen those in ages, with smoking being so taboo. They're everywhere now, I bought myself one. :)

I have a great uncle that has smoked his whole life is 92 and still smoking. I lost a couple of uncles who smoked to cancer they were in their 50s.
The only difference between the ones who died and the one who is still alive is the ones who died spent their whole lives working in factories while the 92 year old has always been a musician(in smoky clubs). From what I have seen the chemicals and substances ingested working around machinery seems far worse than smoking.

"Under the Tobacco Tax Act, unless otherwise authorized, it is against the law to buy, possess or distribute any quantity of illegal cigarettes or any other untaxed tobacco product. These products are illegal tobacco".

It clearly says it s illegal to buy, possess or distribute any untaxed tobacco.

If you buy from the reserve you are BUYING untaxed tobacco.

Like I said before they might not bug you for 1 or 2 packs,,
but start doing it all the time & see what happens.

The Canadian government thinks your robbing them of tax money if you go to the res to buy your tobacco.

Im not saying I agree with it, im just saying the way it is.
I have friends who have been busted in the past.
I also know people who have went just for a few packs & been pulled over - police usually see 1 or 2 packs & say "ok, be on your way" ... "But dont come back & do it again" ... meanwhile they take your name & license plate #

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.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 29269141


...and that is what happens when the government keeps excessively taxing things....blackmarkets pop up everywhere.
