I'm still puzzled by "no more cigarettes online" when I keep
finding websites like this:

cigoutlet.net

You can still get cigarettes online from offshore sources and websites (like cigoutlet). The PACT act shut down the native americans and other US sites selling cigarettes. Typically they send them over USPS one carton at a time, for the most part customs won't mess with it but it's a roll of the dice.

Funny you should mention cigoutlet. I would definitely steer clear from them - they were recently named in a lawsuit by the NY attorney general.

You can read it here: Reuters

I don't really understand this, probably because I'm from UK, but seriously, lol? I'm extremely left wing and I don't agree with this. I think it's probably something I would expect the UK or Canada to do, as they have public health care systems (so if you're smoking, you're (within reason) damaging aspects of your health, so the tax you pay on cigarettes pays for that healthcare should you so need it and around it goes). But why America?

Please learn the definition of socialism before abusing the term in ignorance.

Hi RedRevolver! Welcome to the CigReviews forum!

The American government tells its citizens that the high taxation of tobacco products is to pay for healthcare costs for the 'children' and to defray costs of 'smoking cessation' programs. The truth is there is no safety net for children and there are no smoking cessation programs. Every penny collected goes to pay for government employee salaries and bonuses. And, the government screws itself by implementing these 'knee-jerk' policies that foster American job losses and make smokers buy from overseas instead of the corner store. The job losses cause the gov to lose payroll tax monies and the FSCs and high prices from overtaxation cause sales of tobacco products in the USA to decline. I believe it is the same scenario for foreign governments as well IMHO.
