Default Re: Noor - Sugar Cane & good taste?

mh .. dont know how to tell you the problem
the german law says, that PIPE tobacco may not have more than 5% of wetness. the problem with this is, that there is no special law for hookah tobacco, so it must be taxed as pipe tobacco (because the law says a waterpipe is a pipe). Soex and Noor have to be taxed as tobaccos, and because you smoke it with the hookah, it is taxed as pipe tobacco
so there are two problems: the first is the wetness and the other is the price. you maybe pay $3 for 50g of shisha, we have to pay same as pipe smokers (tobacco is expensive here) and 50g are about $6 ...
