Default Re: Better stuff in the U.S! To Vendors:

It's simple actually,we in the US have less of a tobacco tax, it varies by state but it is about 40-50% of the price of the product. In the UK and Canada tobacco taxes are much higher making it less affordable. No one wants to import it as they think there is less demand. Also, American tobacco companies just don't want to deal with those taxes as well as shipping.
Anyone can import hookahs to UK though not sure if they have customs taxes as well. There are several KM and MZ importers at the moment in the US, for the UK I'm not sure but you are much closer to Egypt, so not sure why. hope that little bit helps.
