Ehh, john said that SB and Nahkla are raising their wholesale prices.. so that means if he wants to make the profit he makes now, he needs to raise his prices too.

Good to see someone refuses to join the freakout wagon. There was never a threat to cause prices to skyrocket. After speaking to John I came to the conclusion there are too many damn Chicken Littles here.

this thread, although amusing at times, has a serious questions and the answer is yes, all tobacco as a matter of fact will be going up next month due to a federal tax but nakhla and sb will have additional increases as well, so yes, stock up if you can. btw, thank HP for all of your promocodes!

For retail and wholesale, right?

If its only $1 increase, why are we freaking out over a 250 gram tub? lol

I'd freak out if it was $10+ for 250. But c'mon now, its only a dollar.

If it ends up being a few bucks increase, honestly, wtf are we freaking out about? :P

Look at the other countries who have taxes, like Australia and Canada for example. I'm sure our new taxes are HEAVEN compared to what they have to pay.

I could be wrong, but if they increase is only a dollar, imo, there really is no reason to freak out unless you buy 5 250 gram tubs every 3 weeks or something.

I have deleted several posts that never needed to be posted. There is no reason to pick on someone, question their intelligence etc. If you feel the need to make posts like that then go somewhere else. Mean spirited posts will get you in trouble. Think before you post.

Nakhla 250g: $60

+ provincial and federal taxes.

The thing that you have wrong is that the prices won't increase just a buck per 250g. Instead, what happens is this:

1) The tax one the manufacturer goes up by lets say 10%
2) The wholesaler seeing his prices going up by 10% passes that increase along to the retailer.
3) The retailer gets hit with a 10% increase in his costs.
4) Anticipating an increase in demand consumers will, for a short time buy a lot more tobacco hoping to avoid higher prices later. This has already happened.
4) The consumer pays the compounded price increase after the 1st of the month.

Assuming that this tax increase will have the same effect as other tax increases on tobacco the following will happen:

A) consumption will fall roughly in proportion with the actual, compounded price increase after the 1st.
B) Larger retailers will temporarily accept lower profits attempting to hold the line on prices.
C) Smaller/marginally profitable wholesalers and retailers will go out of business.
D) Faced with lower sales volume, profits and less competition as a result of everything mentioned above prices will be raised to make up for lost revenue.

Bottom line, expect to see no moassel sell for less then $10 per 250g and and every thing to go up 2-4 bucks per 250g. You can also expect to see a lot less retailers since it won't be possible to make a living in the biz unless you have real purchasing power. Less competition means higher prices.

Those prices are just for the tax increase. any one upping the price more than that is just taking advantage.

i am pretty sure these numbers are accurate, not 100% just pretty sure.

I am, and I would recommend it to anyone else.

But I have something far worse dangling over my head, so, as I said before, feel lucky!
