I feel everything that john is saying. I have starbuzz stock as well and people will not pay the price for it... at least in my area. They buy AF, Tangiers, and Nakhla. This tax is causing a lot of shit for tobacco lovers. I mean damn. Well get ready for this people... prices are going up and up.

Well i guess it's good to know that all the cigars in my collection will be worth even more! Yay Opus X!

But I have been stocking up as of late, and you guys are lucky, at least you can still BUY tobacco online. Soon It will be illegal for me. Obama can suck my thang if he signs this bill.

This really sucks, but I don't think it'll jeopardize sales too much. People will just be switching to cheaper brands like Nakhla, AW, etc.. SB was a rip-off to begin with haha.

Wow, that is a good deal less then the costs in the states prior to the tax increase and a small portion of the cost else where in Europa. This is surprising as I don't recall premium cigars sold in Spain being much lower then the rest of Europa although I haven't been there lately so perhaps I am behind the times.

I suppose that a switch to cheaper brands will be common but I also suspect that overall consumption will drop a lot. Naturally, prices will rise a good deal more then just the compounded effect of the tax increase (which I predict will come out to about $2-3 per 250g) but i'll bet that retail prices will go up in response to declining sales in an attempt to boost per unit profits since that's what happened in the past. My guess is that we will see prices rise about $4-5 per 250g.

The thing is that the decline in consumption will result in a sizable net decline in tax revenue so what ever programs are supported to be supported by excise taxes will get hammered.

The bright side is, I suppose, that smuggling and criminal involvement will take off just like it did Canada a few years back so I suppose some of will be able to dodge the tax man.

My understanding is that the costs of RYO tobacco and what ever the government deems to be "big cigars" will see such an astronomical increase in price that those markets will virtually cease to exist. Not only will excise tax revenue for those industries plummet but the layoffs/closures will drive down revenue from income and state sales taxes and cost a pretty penny for unemployment claims.

I wonder if all of the Obama worshiping university students are up to living a life of austerity and if they understand that their great grandkids will be making interest payments on the "stimulus" in perpetuity?

I for one would rather smoke the good stuff less then smoke chemical/candy flavoured spent sugar cane at all. If that sort of crap is all we are left with i'd rather support the mafia with my tobacco budget or simply not smoke at all.

Why will it be illegal for you to buy tobacco online?

man I hate taxes, I almost quit smoking cigarettes when my state hiked their taxes a few years ago, granted it was still cheaper than other places but being a poor college student it hits the wallet hard.
