Well they've obviously found a way to sugar coat it somehow haven't they?

It's no better here in Kentucky, looks like we'll be paying an extra .30 cents a pack on cigarettes and 6% sales tax on alcohol any day now.

That way the state won't have to cut back on any of it's ridiculous spending.

Cigarettes in the States are fairly reasonably priced though aren't they? When I was in Las Vegas, it was about $4.50 ish for a pack of Marlboro Menthols. Up here in Canada, Methol Cigarettes cost anywhere between $9.00 and $12.00 depending on the brand/taxes. I guess though with the exchange rate, it's probably all relative...

I'd have to quit if I lived up there. Here, Marlboros are around $3 per pack, $28 per carton.

Hmm, $6.20 a pack here in California, for top-shelf cigarettes (Nat Sherman). That's about $7.75 Canadian, at the current exchange rate.

I think the lesser 'premium' brands (Marlboro, Camel, etc) are about $4.50 a pack, or $40 a carton.

Edit: Prices not including our wonderful 8% local sales tax.

OKay so prices are a little more expensive here for Premium Cigarettes. There's a brand we have (Canadian Classic - much worse then players - might as well smoke glass), that's pretty cheap - around $6 I think... (i don't know for sure, mom smokes those). Those are considered bottom of the line cigarettes, kind of like Number 7.

Premium Cigarettes (Benson & Hedges, Matinee, and MacDonald) are a little on the pricy side. At a gas station down on the North Shore (here in BC), Matinee are about $8.50/pack - for a pack of 20, and in the gas stations MacDonald are about $11.00ish for a pack of 25 (in Alberta). Alberta only has the 5% tax (Canadian wide), whereas BC has the 5% tax as well as the 6% provincial tax (so 11% taxes).

du Maurier is considered a standard average cigarette (I think), and they are around $9.00 a pack as well in either place. Alberta or BC. They're probably (well I think anyway) the smoothest of the regular cigarettes you can buy.

A friend of mine bought a carton of Marlboro Lites when we were in Vegas for about $35 I think, at a Wallgreens. (That was last year so my pricing might be off).

American smokes are so much stronger then Canadian ones though, I find anyway.

Ok, I have posted my closing statement in my debate.

Benarius still has not returned to the debate yet. After discussing this, I decided 3 days was enough (with a lot of help from the Mod), and went ahead and posted my closing.

This isn't the way I thought my first debate would play out, but whatever happens next is out of my hands.

At least they're available in Canada.

Interesting point, there. You used to be able to buy cheap 'premium' cigarettes, world-wide, from these folks:

www.yesmoke.eu...

Until the Phillip-Morris USA brought down their hammer. Their web page has an interesting rant about how PM blends different chemicals, etc., into the same-brand cigarettes in different countries.

I can't smoke anything but Marlboro Light 100s. Anything else is either way too strong or like smoking air (Ultra Lights). Those cheapo brands just make me nauseous....even standing by someone smoking them.

I don't know about our cigarettes being stronger than Canadian ones, but I do know that there are at least 30-40 brands to choose from at any convenience store.

Morning all; What did Schro Dog do now...


Ian: I thought Nats always cost ~6 bucks?

I have actually quit smoking but back when it was all about the American Spirits; ~$5.50....expensive habit when you are a chain smoker...

He DISSED Nat Shermans! Them's fightin' words Dawg.

Hubby loves American Spirits but we can't afford 'em either. We're smoking Echos these days, which are cheap but supposed to be "additive-free."

Depends so much on where you live.

When I quit smoking five years ago, my Camels were running $7 to $7.50 a pack in the Korean delis
