When I lived in Chicago cigarettes were cost five to six bucks a pack.

In Korea a pack of marlboros costs $1.50. WTF, right?

So I'm picking up smoking again. :cool:

what you don't know is that the reason they are so cheap over there is because it all the unused and unwanted tobaco in American cigs.

Ever smoked a hoggie cig...

you would understand.

Hahaha, greatest reason ever. I was buying Marlboro's for >= $3.00, but I started rolling again, and I just got 1.56 oz. tobbacco + 72 papers for $1.50. \o/

Marlboros are $2.54 including tax at CVS pharmacy. Anywhere else you have to pay around $3.54. Who would have thought that a drug store would be cheeper on cigs.

Hmm... I got mine at Wal-Mart for 2.72 before tax, I think... but I used to go to the cig outlet to check for 2-for-1's and such all the time. :thumbsup:

Last place I lived before here was upstate NY; cigarettes were $5 a pack and ~$50 a carton there. I think I pay $35 a carton here, and maybe $3.75 a pack. (not sure on the pack though, I hardly ever buy anything but cartons.)

You should just stop smoking and save for a car or something. :thumbsup:

marbs are about 3.50-4.00 at most gas stations and convenience stores around town here in SA, Texas.

Here in BC, they're about 8-9 bucks a pack... but I don't smoke so I don't care! I'm glad the government is taxing the fuck out of them since smokers are such a burden on the public health care system. Fucking retards, give yourself cancer and then blame the government for not taking good enough care of you?! I don't think so. Plus, if it helps keep cigs out of the mouths/lungs of kids then that's great.

When I worked on ships, you could buy a carton of Marlboros from the quartermaster for $10. Suffice to say, anyone who'd quit smoking before they went to work on a cruise ship started again.

Smoking sucks. It will kill you. Please stop.
