    Curious to how many people actually buy legal cigarettes in NYC... I know it is a haul to those Indian reservations on LI...

    Like when they went up in Ontario to like $10 a pack 15 years ago had a guy at work who would go into Chinatown and pick me up a couple of cartons of Marlboro's for like $20 a carton.

    Once the government figured out how much money they were loosing in tax to these smuggled cigarettes they dropped the price back down...

    I had a few friends who were getting cartons for like $12 each from Switzerland a few years back. Until NYC got wise to it and pallets of purchased cartons were left rotting on the port docks and not being released. So they all lost their money on those orders.

    Well when I first moved here smokes were $28 a carton in NH... and they had a 5 carton per transaction limit. And all you saw where Massholes and Mainers loading up on smokes... they have since raised the price to basically what you pay in ME now though.

    Booze is still cheap in NH though... oddly wine is more expensive there then in Ontario though... like a buck or two per bottle.

    That's right. Worry about shit like this and ignore the real
    problems like the growing debt and poor condition of subways
    and tunnels. Nevermind the real problems. Just be the nanny.

    What about the word "cigarette"? Shouldn't there be a tax everytime someone says that word? For the children! Think of the children!

    And don't stop there! Make the very thought of smoking a thoughtcrime! Brilliant!

    John Spartan, you are fined one credit for violation of the cigarette verbal utterance law. Be well.

    I fucking love Demolition Man. That movie is a beautiful (and entertaining) indictment of political correctness and utopian politics.

    Too bad that's where we're headed instead of learning from it.

    I'd like to think that we would've learned from it if only the commentary track on the DVD hadn't been the most boring commentary track I've ever listened to. Two or three dick jokes could've changed the course of American politics.

    With the advent of the cool ranch taco, I'm thinking that prophecy is coming closer to reality.
