New Australian Shisha Taxes!?
Today I went to my local tobacco store in Melbourne (Flinders St) and I wanted to buy 250g al-Fakher. This is normally $21, which is about double what it is online, but Australia is a small market and it is retail, so it's not too bad.
The shopkeeper, who I know pretty well, tells me that 250g IS NOW $95!!!
He said that it's due to new government taxes, and that it could go even higher soon! So now the cheapest thing they have is Prince Molasses or Soex for $30 (no thanks).
Anyone know about these new taxes?
