Re: why does tangiers from the retailers cost so much more
I think that the vendors have every right to charge what they do. They have to make a living and the provide a service. If you buy from a vendor you have a variety of tobacco. This is one part of what you're paying for with their service regardless of whether or not you use it. They ship which makes tobacco available to people who don't have it readily available locally. If you can drive to the Tangiers Lounge and pick it up at close to wholesale then you have a luxury. I live near an Middle Eastern Market and they have extremely good pricing, but I cannot buy any variety of tobacco there so I am more than willing to support vendors for making other tobaccos available to me.
