Default Taxes?!?! WTF Where have I been?

Ive been gone from the hookah scene for a while... Ive had little time and lots of shisha and coal I was sitting on so there was no need to shop.

A couple of weeks back I went to my favorite store in Arlington TX and saw that $6.99 boxes of Nakhla are now $17.99

WhhhhhhhaaaaaaaaaaAAAAAaaaaaaaa..

Several of the neighboring stores were the same price.... is this price fixing or is this across the board everywhere?

dang.

Lake- No, it's not across the board. You can still get decently priced tobacco online. Though, online has suffered price increases as well.

Unfortunately, I think Texas had one the biggest tax hikes ;(

welcome back though!

Welcome back Lake and yeah your local government has decided that Cows is not making enough money for them so they decided to rip off the smoking Cowpokes and raise the taxes while you were sleeping

(Oh and forgot to mention the name Texas will now be Spelt Taxes)

I have said it since I moved to this shithole...Tx sux. God I cant wait to move back to Florida...even though that federal tax is still going to put another 6" in the glory hole of my wallet.

In everything, end of discussion.

Still haven't seen the tax hike, well except here at the local Middle Eastern Grocery. I don't get my tobacco there because of the price. My local smoke shop hasn't raised their prices or maybe it is just because I am a good customer. Anyways at the grocery it is like 18 for Nakhla and 22 for Al Fakher, I think haven't been there in 2 weeks. A little ridiculous if you ask me.

What's so bad about Texas? I mean I want out too but only because I want to know what 4 seasons looks like and want a better view than a cow pasture.
