What are the prices of a pack of cigarettes in your area (including tax)???



The cigarettes were like $4.75 including tax yesterday but now they are near $6.00 today

I don't smoke personally, but I believe packs of cigarettes are, with tax here, roughly around $10 CDN on average from what I've seen.

It does vary from shop to shop and from brand to brand here. Some packs are cheap as $7 and some are about $12.

20 Marlboro Lights in London can be anything from £5.40 - £6.50, depending on where you are. Around the shittty part of London I live in, they're about £5.50, but I bought a pack from Shaftesbury Avenue (very central London) yesterday and they were nearer the £6.50 mark.

Some of the shops round here get cheap foriegn ones in though, and sell them for £3.00, but it's kept very hush hush, due the possible illegal-ness of it.

I get them for free, but since I don't smoke I usually just pass them on to the local orphans.

Yes, it´s ridiculous. Here, in Sweden, a pack of Prince is almost 50SEK(5£) and a snuffbox the same. When is it enough? They raise the taxes to stop people from using tobacco when all it does is increase smuggle. Stupid. Why don´t I quit?

At least the government earns some more money to heal those who decide to stop when it's too late - I personally think they should use EXCLUSIVELY the tax money coming from cigarettes. I don't think it's fair that I have to pay to heal those who got ill because of their own (stupid) choice AND also damage MY lungs with their smoke.

It's been a long time, but an eighth, which I think is about 3.5g is £20.

You´re absolutly right. Rather stick to my precious snuff and quit smoking. There, it´s final! This is my final pack.

a Henry is £25 here [for decent stuff] or £5 if you want a really tacky bit of solid soap

What about damage caused by alcohol? Broken legs from skiing? Injuries from car accidents? Why should you pay for that? Because the health system is based on solidarity. The healthy pay for the sick and the strong pay for the weak. Once you start to discriminate a group of people (smokers) you destroy the idea of solidarity. If you exclude smokers, overweight persons will be next - because why should you pay for the health problems of someone who cannot handle their weight? or the injuries of people who think they can ski (drive) AND destroy the landscape (environment) with their behaviour?

Slight slippery slope logic, but nonetheless a good point.  If one group of people can be tossed overboard, (figuratively speaking), then why not other groups?

LoL, I used to be 230 lbs! Now I'm a lot less, thanks to my diet of anxiety, cigarettes, and no food.

You really don't know Queenzone that well. It's hard to ignore anyone on here. I made a reasonable topic and there's reasonable discussion. The only person who's started shit in this thread is you. Now, everyone here has seen full photos of me. How about you post some of your self, huh suga?
