Was at my local high end cigar store, they only sell Romman shisha and they are EXPENSIVE...the original price was $25 for 250g tin, they are raising their prices to $30.20...and the 50g packs are going up $.60 cents each...

i'm glad i have online vendors to buy from, there arent any real hookah stores around here that i've found yet...

alright...well, here it is, prices are up and we are all still here. It sucks, but 23 bucks for starbuzz 250g, 3 for AF 50g...it could be worse, right? It shouldnt be enough of an increase to stop us from smoking like we usually do IMHO

Meh, it's not as bad as I thought it was going to be. But it still sucks. Is there such thing as a inverse-tax?

I say who gives a shit?

tRUE, you americans are lucky, we in Australia have to pay $60 for 250g. Its a joke. I hope you guys can cope with a 1.50 increase.

some of the places around me charge 15$ for Nankhla. They will be out of business.

The April First tax really only effected cigarette prices the most, then cigar, then pipe and last but not least...shisha. We are lucky, I think.

Eh, as a Canadian who buys American (glad to be helping American children get healthcare!), the only thing this price raise has changed is that I won't be buying Starbuzz anymore. Overrated, overpriced tub of glycerin with a pinch of tobacco in it. lol premium shishas.
