i got a email from SSC saying
"On February 4th Congress passed a new SCHIP bill that will raise taxes on tobacco. While the bill was primarily aimed at taxing big tobacco, producers of hookah shisha will be hit hard as well. It may seem like a horrible April Fools joke, but the bill goes into effect on April 1st and so prices will go up from there.
While this is definitely unfortunate information, we're letting you know because there's still a good amount of March left to stock up on shisha before the prices get hiked! We'll be doing our best to make sure our prices stay as low as possible even with increased taxation."
