Bill Schulz Finds Cigarettes For $3.00 A Pack


Tired of paying 13 bucks for a pack of cigs, Bill Schulz finds a place in NYC that lets you roll your own smokes.  Buying it loose leaf and putting it through a machine that they have on site, you can assemble your own pack of cigarettes for a little more than three dollars.  Hope and change, indeed.  The down side?  City officials in New York are rumored to be shutting places like this down. (that’s what happens when you get in the way of their “sin” tax)

What do you guys think?  Is it even worth going to shops like that to roll your cigarettes?  If you’re a heavy smoker, it might be, but if you don’t smoke that much, the added time and hassle might not make it worth your while.  Still… It’s nice that this option exists (for now).  And if New York City does shut this operation down, how do you feel?  Is that the government trying to maximize the taxes it collects from us?  Or is it just looking out for our health? (a line I’m sure they’ll try to use)

Let us know in the comments below or on Facebook.  And as always, we’re looking out for you. (or something like that)
