Cigs $20 A Pack in Australia
TOBACCO taxes are set to be repeatedly increased over the next five years, potentially raising billions of dollars in extra revenue for the commonwealth and pushing the price of a packet of cigarettes above $20.

If that leads to more quitting, rather than bludging in the door way making everyone else do all of the work, then fine by me.

Nope. Not where I live anyway. I've heard stories of people getting caught on raids for marijuana, they ended up getting fined for the pot plant but three years jail for the tobacco.

This country has been sold to bureaucrats, lobby groups and foreigners. We have lost the human dignity of self. We are just consumers and tax sheep to be herded and treated as livestock and slaves.

We live in a time of pacifism on an individual basis. The only people banding together are cooperations and governments. All so they can extort us further. Enslave us further. The future is propaganda and lies.

You can grow your own and it is easy to grow,I live in the USA next to the Canadian border and I still have a couple of plants growing in front of my house, i'm just leaving them in to see how long they last,it has been quite cold and we are on our 3rd week of frost but they are still kicking.
Check e-bay for seeds,Australia has a ton of seed vendors and 5$ Aus will get you 1000 seeds.

New in town sailor, look up, your being sprayed with Barium and Aluminum particles. Try and read the ingredients on your next canned soda drink or processed food. GMO foods are giving the world a 'Death Certificate'. And your worried about a few smokers. hahaha
