EBT cards that ONLY have food stamps on them can ONLY be used to purchase FOOD.
Tobacco is not food.
But - if you want to smoke and you're broke (and ftr, I don't smoke) grow you some tobacco. It grows like weeds in most states and is just some
work. Use it for insecticide in your garden as well, and put it on a bee sting if you get stung.
I hate people demonizing tobacco so. It's really a good plant. If it weren't for the bit of tobacco I grow, I'd not have half the garden I do
because I can't afford bug spray.
At some point the cashier has to trust that the cash register software is right, and if it doesn't seem to be, report it - don't take it out on a
customer because you have a grudge or a political opinion. Shoot, most cashiers are probably eligible for food stamps themselves.
It's not ok for everyone to be hating everyone because of envy and distrust. It's not ok.
