Lightbulb No More Cigarettes by Mail - So, what now?

So what now, MrPresidentBarryObamaman, ya gonna keep smoking in private, but get rid of a bunch of online tobacco jobs? You gonna lie to the world you helped the 700 recognized (world-wide) online tobacco retailers that have millions of customers in the USA with a hand up? How the Pact Act you signed represents the "New Slavery" of (voting) Citizen Smokers in America and around the world? Did you even read the 16 page PACT Act? I mean, if you didn't read the Immigration Reform bill at 16 pages....

A lot of online retailers won't just close down, because many have brick-n-mortar outlets where anybody can just drive up and get the discounted cigs. However, a lot more retailers will be shut down. Hopefully, some of them can eke out a living trying to sell cigars and menthol cigarettes on and offline.

Only 16 pages this must be the shortest bill in the last decade.

Must be a blackmarket but I don't know how to access it. I'm going to try rolling my own, but I understand you can't even order loose tobacco overseas now. I have been buying overseas for years.

Ah but you can still buy "pipe tobacco". You can buy tubes and injectors separately but not in the same order. So yeah it's pretty much make your own. I think ethnic grocery stores sell smuggled or counterfeit cigs under the counter but usually stores will sell them at slightly cheaper and they look the same, you need special equipment to tell the difference between real and fake cigs. I personally use snus, dip and smoke a pipe now, but from a cost saving perspective in my state that's hardly an improvement.

see my post in "Is CheapCigarettes.com gone, too????

"There is one exception written into the law: tobacco products mailed non-commercially between two adults is perfectly legal. But when the Postal Service drew up its regulations implementing the bill, it decided tobacco parcels could only be sent by Express Mail"

Yeah, you can still send cig cartons in the mail to US troops overseas. At least hopefully you can send the troops cigs. I heard some people are trying to get sending cigs to troops added as an exception to the PACT Act. Since no cig mail deliveries include no cig mailing overseas. Not just within the USA mail.

Can a member post a link on this new law?

If it's really true, I missed it somewhere in the news.

You didn't buy smokes from the Native territories or through the mail, you would have missed it. Our Socialist Republic has decided smoking should be banned and they are doing whatever possible to make it happen including banning the shipment of cigarettes through the mail.

They are only looking out for our welfare whilst picking our pockets, God bless 'em all.

So what exactly is meant by no smokes in the mail anymore? I thought Americans were lucky and customs didn't care about this. To the north here in Canada it's probably a 50/50 or worse that our cartons won't get through customs which is a bitch since I can't buy Lucky Strikes here!
