I think I saw a sign hanging on Speedway's window saying Phillip Morris brand smokes are going up $7 a carton starting today due to manufacturer costs.

Not sure what the official date for it to go into effect is/was, but I know it is happening. I makes me want to go into business selling cigarettes in the city though, I could buy em cheap on base and make a fortune! Shit, I might even be able to afford a ducati with the way prices are rising

Thats a misnomer, people do get crabby, but the trick is to focas that anger at the source of it and thats the smokes. I had a pack sitting on a shelf in my garage that I vocally swore at every time I walked by, after 6 months I threw those away and told them to fuck off one last time

You and me both. I used to smoke about a pack of Marlboros a week. At $7/pack in Cook County, that's at least $371 I saved since I quit just over a year ago. That's a new set of tires right there.

When the pepper spray runs out, can I have your number?

I love the fact that tabacco companies can't advertise on TV. But every sporting event floods the screen with beer and car commercials. Its gotta be a liberal thing. " we will stop you from hurting yourself, but get loaded and plow a minivan full of kids thats ok" soon drugs will be cheaper than smokes.. this will be great for mexico's economy

Wait, what about the Lucky Strike aftermarket GSXR fairings? Will those still be available?

This is the part of the "quit smoking" campaign nobody mentioned. They will sustain that revenue somehow. First by increasing taxes on smokes till no one smokes (at least through store bought cigarettes)...then by taking aim squarely at the rest of us.

At some point, government; local, state and federal, have lost site of the concept of "budget". They just bump taxes when they go overboard.

I was so upset that I forget what I usually pay. 47.00 for a carton. So I think I just bought my last one cause the people at the smoke shops say at the end of this month it goes up 7 more bucks!!!
