Ever wanted to become a dealer with none of the stigma? I certainly have because I'm a greedy cretin of society.

Soon you might be able to sell cigarettes at a massively inflated price to 25 year olds if New Zealand style legislation is enacted in the UK gradually banning the sale of tobacco to people of an annually increasing age.

I wonder how many shop owners are going to get battered by smokers if this turd of an idea ever floats out of the toilet?

Selling 'singles' out of a pack for half the cost of a full pack was tempting back in high school, but I never got into it.

A few kids made enough cash to start dealing weed, but they soon got busted.

I figure the same pattern will hold for those pommie Jacks.

It was a big thing in prisons here where you have a captive audience and buying tobacco from commissary was still allowed. A pouch of Amber Leaf was the ultimate tradable resource that was certain to sell.

No tax here if it’s whole leaf.Get a shredder and an electric roller and you are in business.

I've been told by smokers that exemptions exist in the UK if whole tobacco leaves are used too.

I do like the smell of a flavorful cigar.

That said, smoking is a severe health risk.

But, when isolated, nicotine is a fascinating substance with a wide range of effects on the human body, like changes in metabolism.
