Default HATE TEXAS TOBACCO TAX

Grrrr! So I stopped off at Texas Hookah today. I'm a big fan of Afzal Bombay Pan Masala and Rooh Afzah flavors. TexasHookah had ridiculous price online, $5, so I figured I'd go pick it up. FREAKING TEXAS TAX! It was like $11.50 after the tax. Are you kidding me??!!

So apparently, I will no longer be buying tobacco locally. God it sucks. I'd rather pay $10 shipping on an order than $5+ in tax PER TOBACCO PRODUCT (depending on how much the weight is).

End Rant.

Really? I have purchased tobacco from them and only been charged the 8.25% sales tax, never any more.

When did this happen? I stopped by a few weeks ago and everything was normal. Does that mean H-S is gonna be doing the same thing?

I'm thinking buying up the local supply of Nakhla DA, got a kilo here right now. The local guy recognizes me now and cuts me a slight break on price. If the tax goes into effect, I'll be set for awhile.

You're not living in TX, this tax doesn't affect you. It just screws us.

Here in the Netherlands it's worse.

50 grams of Nakhla costs €5,80, which is $7,96 atm.
