    Nah...apparently blabbering hyperbole is way more fun!

    As for myself, I am not worried. I inject my own tobacco into filter tubes, and it costs me about a buck a pack.

    They probably aren't buying them by the 20 pack, either and they resemble, "cigars", more than cigarettes.

    Not exactly the same, but pretty close.

    Congrats, you've managed to completely ignore two of my three points.
