for my fellow smokers out there that are getting good a sick of the prices of cigarettes growing exponentially, you may want to check out
My Smokers' Rights
Now, that being said, How many of my fellow smokers here are fighting their own battles against the continual increase of a pack of smokes by rolling
Those of you who are, what's your favorite brand of RYO tobacco and papers?
Myself, I quite enjoy my Drum with my freebie JOB papers. Get's the job done nicely.
Also, a question for everyone. How do you feel about the constant efforts to increase the tax on cigarettes?
And finally, a bit of commentary.
Sure, smoking is a nasty habit, but then again so are many of the other habits most of us are guilty of indulging in from time to time. Drinking, junk
food and other habits lead to as many health problems (if not more) than cigarettes do over time. However, cigs seem to catch a horrible rap these
While I understand the rights of a nonsmoker to not have to share in my cigarette smoke (and yes, I actually respect it and try to avoid exposing
those that don't want to be exposed), I think legislation is getting a bit ridiculous. For example, there are people in my area who are actually
trying to get legislation passed that will stop me from smoking in my own home, in my car or ANYWHERE for that matter. If laws like these are allowed
to pass, what's next? Perhaps those of you out there that are for legislation that takes away the rights of one person to do something you don't
like simply because you don't like it should stop and consider what rights of yours may be taken next.
Cigarettes are indeed a hazard to ones' health. However, if someone chooses to partake in an act that they know is not good for them, as long as they
hurt no one else in the process, it is THEIR right and they shouldn't be punished because of those out there that do not agree with them. Cigarette
taxes are getting insane, there are actually places where cigarettes can cost upwards of 15 dollars a pack in the United States and of that 90% is
TAX. This tyranny needs to STOP!!
BEAT THE TAXES!!! START ROLLING YOUR OWN!
1 pack of drum + 50 papers = $2.25. equivalent of 2 and 1/2 packs of cigarettes which can run you (on average) 15 dollars.
