Not sure where to post this so I posted it here, please move to appropriate thread.
Cigarettes are getting more and more expensive, so whats a person to do to get their fix?
MAKE YOUR OWN CIGARETTES!!!
I went to my local tobacco shop today to buy my carton of pall malls, which i usually buy a carton every week and a half, and looked around a bit, and looked at the make your own cigarette shelf. I noticed how cheap the tobacco is and tubes and decided to go ahead and try it. the total cost for enough tobacco and tubes for a carton cost me all but $12.00!!!
This is the way I'm gonna go for now on.
I made a video to show you how cheap and easy this is
To all the folk that I KNOW that will post on how bad it is, etc etc, TROLL ELSEWHERE
The topic here is rolling and making your own cigarettes, anything else WILL BE REPORTED
Now, if i could find a way to make my OWN cigars, I'd be all set...

I too roll my own,been doing it for the last five years or so.The thing that ive noticed is that i dont have a smokers cough like i did with cigarettes and i dont waken up gasping for a smoke.I should also mention that i dont use filters either just a rolled up bit of cardboard.

You gotta get yourself a real cigarette machine.
for forty bucks you can roll 18 cigarettes in about five minutes, less than the time it takes waiting in line at the gas station to get a pack. I get Largo pipe tobacco @ about 12 bucks for a 12 oz bag. with two boxes of gambler filters it comes out to less than ten bucks a carton.

The next step is to dig up part of your back yard and grow your own tobacco, without the Radioactive Phosphate Fertilizers used to grow the stuff in that ziploc bag you have there.

Many do this especially in Canada where the cost of the cheapest brands is 9 dollars a pack. If you're on a farm, or friends with a farmer, growing organic is the way to go.

N. Carolina is the #1 Tobacco growing state in the US so it should be easy to source out seed.

Tobacco isn't a "controlled substance"



Provided the tobacco isn't sold or traded, the Food and Drug Administration doesn't regulate homegrown tobacco. Most people grow for cigarettes, but some blend their own cigars and chew.


www.nbcwashington.com...

From the same article:



Cigarettes cost an average of $4.35 a pack, home growers can make that amount for about 30 cents.




A grower who purchased one of Johnson's Oriental and Turkish blends for $24.50 could satisfy a pack-a-day habit for more than three years, according to Johnson's calculations.


How would you like to spend $25 and not buy another pack for 3 years? The only thing that's extra is your time/labour. (part of the allure AFAIC)

Kentucky Select is a well-known organic tobacco that works well in cigarettes. However, you need to store rolled cigs in a humidor as the no-additive leaf dries out easily.

I second the comment about getting the machine. We have the top-o-matic crank machine and it works fantastically. The crank machine is so much easier than the injectors and handheld types.

I can make a pack in less than five minutes.

We haven't bought a pack of smokes in over a year.

Eh I just support the local Native reservation at 15 dollars for a big bag of already rolled smokes imported from Canada. Not as harsh as name brand, no headaches, and reasonably cheap in my opinion. I have tried to roll before and killed it everytime. The only downside doing the way I do is the smokes literally come in a big ziplock bag and you have to purchase a reusable hard plastic case unless you wanna look all ghetto lugging around a baggie of smokes!!!

You can buy better packs than the plastic ones. I found a really cool one at a local gas station, but, I am sure if you look online you could find one that you like.

Mine was 6 bucks.
