Too true. Here, Here!

In australia it's illegal to grow your own tobacco. They tell us it's poisonous to smoke it untreated.

Haven't people been smoking untreated tobacco for thousands of years?

Also, it used to take, on average, seven minutes to smoke a cigarette in Australia.

Now it takes 3 to 4 minutes. More burning chemicals to make the ciggie burn quicker= more cigarettes sold.

The bastards are trying to kill us quicker.

Just try and find tobacco seeds, too.

Learn to roll your own and get Samson or some other pure tobacco pouches.

It saves you money too!

That is SOOO true.

Also, and a little off-topic, but not really:

Why does water have ingredients now? What could you add to water to make it more water-y???

Total BS.

They want to kill us all, smokers and non-smokers alike.

on them!

What kind of stupid question is this? Don't you realise that cigarettes with no tobacco aren't addictive? And if they are not addictive they are not a guaranteed seller.
If there was only tobacco in them, how would the poor starving fatcats who own the multimillion companies eat.

Have a heart for them why don't you! Poor things. Locked in their mountain retreats, or beachside villas...having to figure out what to do with all that money.

This machine is a godsend, you buy filters with plain paper all set to go as you see in the picture, then you goto your tobacco shop and buy straight up smoking tobacco and this machine will pack it into the paper so you can smoke it. Not only will you save a ton of money because this is much much cheaper but you won't be getting all the crap that comes with american cigarettes.

Cigarette machine

Edit: oh did i mention you could make 20 cigarettes to fill your pack in like 15 minutes. Plus they taste just as good as any cigarette i've had. I think you can get menthol paper too if you like that.

OMG!! I didn't know such a device existed. I'll have to purchase one immediately.

Personally, I had been wondering, in light of the NWO and everything, how I was going to get my cig's at the end of the world. Stressful time, you know...

j/k

Back when cigarettes jumped in price from 50 cents to about, say 75 cents a pack, those rolling machines became all the rage.

However, with a little practice almost anyone can roll a good cigarette by hand. I used to know a one armed man in my youth who could hand roll a cigarette.

However, I think the best route is to give up cigarettes completely. That way you don't feed the "the poor starving fatcats who own the multimillion companies." Your insurance will cost less. Your medical bills will be fewer and with a little luck, you'll live longer.

Some contents of a ciggarette:
Benzene
Nitrosamines
FORMALDEHYDE
And hydrogen CYANIDE
what the hell are they doing to us???

I only know this because they put it (and other warnings) on the packs in England

If you put in a bit of practice, you can actually make 20 in about 5. I was able to do that with one machine (different brand/style; forget what it was, but kinda similar in design.) Course, it was after having it for 6-7 months, and I could only get going like that if I was really trying to do it that fast. The first couple of weeks or so you'll probably want to keep buying regular packs--it's a real pain trying to make a cigarette when you need it, and all you do is break the tube, or jam the machine, or put in enough tobacco for only a quarter of a smoke. Once you get the hang of it though, it's great.

Also, is it menthol paper/tubes? I always thought it was the tobacco that was menthol...I remember seeing *something* that allowed you to make your own menthols, but I never paid any attention to it (smoke regulars myself.)

Grady's right though; the best thing of course is to quit period. I'll admit that, right as I light up a cigarette

I think it's in the filter that makes it menthol but i could be wrong, To be honest I wish i had this machine when i still smoked, if i had i would of just made a packs worth each morning and been off for the day. But As you and Grady point out quitting is best, I myself have been clean for a year and a half. I used that smoke away pill worked fantastically for me.

Me, I dont particularly like ciggarettes but I love the green tobaccaco (if you catch my drift) so it's hard to quit when you want to smoke one but not the other...
