Figured I'd post a new thread about this, I asked it in a different thread where it'll just get buried.
If shisha tobacco is only 30% tobacco, why is it so expensive?
I can understand importing adds to the cost. But....It still seems really high, considering it's mostly sugar (molasses).. Honey is a bit more expensive, but... The domestic (USA) brands, well obviously they're just taking advantage of a new market and charging as high a price as the market will bear. High price of new fashion?
Now that shisha tobacco is really becoming popular, we as consumers need to drive the prices down
