    Either that or they’ll go straight to the high tax states like MD.

    I buy mine in Delaware.

    I don’t smoke anymore so I don’t know firsthand but I heard like around Chicago and places like that it’s running around $12 a pack. You’re gonna attract organized criminal activity at that price. There’s just no way around it. You figure if the average smoker goes through one and a half to two packs a day And you’re stuck in some city spending $20 a day on cigarettes, that’s getting up there to the level of people who carry other types of habits. Lol

    Usually in Massachusetts because of the increases in the cigarette taxes some residents will drive across the border to New Hampshire to get them on the cheap!
    Wouldn’t be surprised if the stolen cancer sticks are sold on the cheap elsewhere. And if they don’t have the federal tax stickers on them,that’s going to open another can of worms!

    Around Chicagoland some people will go to the “collar counties”(Lake,Kane,DuPage & Will) to get everything cheaper to avoid the Cook County sales taxes!

    I used to cross into NH on Sunday for beer :)

    Back when I was young and partied with the college chicks in Amherst.

    Fortunately two packs is a week’s worth for me.
