Default UK TOBACCO TAX

This is just to show how serious the uk tobacco tax is .

http://www.alfakher.co.uk/

on this site the wholesale price for a 50g packa of alfakher shisha flavour is 8.99/$14.70, yh u heard right thats wholesale?

this table shows the retail price in the uk after tax, note this is just for one of each

PACK SIZES-- RRP
50g--------- 11.99/$19.69
250g-------- 31.99/$52.47
500g --------54.99/$90.22
1000g------- 109.99/$180.45


I just thought this was ridiculous and people should know how serious its got over here, and how important, places like **********, and nazarhookah, are to us.

It really is horrendously expensive... Though I've never seen it at 110quid! The last time I was quote a price (admittedly it was a few months ago) it was roughly 80quid for a kg! even that is extortionate lol

I don't know the conversion from pounds to Euro, but I paid about 12 Euros for 250 grams or Nakhla double apple.

I just know that Germany has high tobacco taxes too, so I was just wondering how it compared.

The sad thing is that this is what is happening all over the world. It will keep on happening until people get organized and protest it. Remember that one voice in the right place can be heard by thousands, and if those thousand voice all cry out at the same time it will be heard by millions.

All it takes is one person to take up the cause, many will ignore it, yet some will hear the call and join the movement.

Yes when people were outraged about gas prices they went down but I slowly see them creeping up. Tobacco in Europe is outrageously expensive.What can we do?

Yea that's what I heard too. You can get it cheaper and with more glycerin at the Turkish shops... even though they screw you over sometimes.
