If I buy 3 kilos of tobacco 6 times a year then thats close to 110 bucks in profit for little bit of effort. If thats not enough then fine, because to eric, that is MORE than enough.

So then if you want them to charge 1.50 more than they pay for the tobacco initially after shipping then where does the money for the rest of the costs of business come from?
