All this talk of baccy becoming hard to come by is really worrying me, being so skint there is no way in blue blazes can I build any kind of cellar, man this anti-smoking movement is really getting depressing. Sad

I cant see any blanket bans coming into effect anytime soon. Maybe 10 years or so, but nothing I'm losing sleep over today. I always have a suspicion that if there is a bastion of English pipe / cigar smokers anywhere, surely it has to be the house of lords. With any luck they will buy us some time.

'Us' meaning me and Kirk, you guys are boned.

the threat in the States is much more severe, as the FDA has announced they intend to publish their deeming regulation by April 2013. They've been regulating cigarettes and moist snuff for a couple years now, and you can see what that means by trying to purchase those online.

If the price of tobacco rockets up, I guess I'll just buy enough to replace what I consume and smoke some percentage of my cellar. I've been buying bulk to accumulate as much as I can as fast as I can. I've always adored Escudo; 22 tins now, 100 in the past; that's the only expensive tinned tobacco I've bought. It would take me just a few hours to make a list of 100 tins to buy.

No, I'm not looking forward to double or triple prices on pipe tobacco! Mad

Prepare while you can, I guess.

Otherwise, it'll be interesting to see how long it takes for the black market to shape up -- a replay of "Prohibition" complete with bogus products.

What a Face

Let's see here: if I stock up on Lane Bulks and re-package/rename them appropriately, only to later sell them for what I feel is a 'fair and competitive' price - I could make money on this! Twisted Evil

During the alcohol prohibition, our Canadian neighbors were nice enough to help us. I'm sure their government would allow them to do it again, seeing as how a lot of other countries other than the U.S. grow the noxious weed!
Half said in jest BTW..

In the not too distant future, Kyle Weiss arrested by cops with dreadlocks and joints in their mouths, pepper-sprayed for non-compliance by growing his own tobacco (the gateway drug) and distributing--a true enemy of the people put in his place, Weiss later dies in a Wal-Mart funded prison, shanked by a sharpened Equate toothbrush handle for giving his ration of THC brownie to the wrong guy.

Futureworld is gonna rock.

I'm still over the place on my tobacco tastings. Sounds like I need to start making some decisions and choose some blends to start buying up. Is there any idea on when these price hikes may start taking place?

They already have. Like most bogus goals agendas have, it's like water wearing down rock--little by little. Yesterday is cheaper than today, but tomorrow will be more expensive. "ASAP" for stocking up is about as general an answer for that as there is...without making yourself homeless or unfed in the process...

I know there are a few pipe related sites that follow current tobacco legislation closely. I can't seem to remember them. Could someone put up any links they might know of with that kind of info??

This all reminds me of this thread:

Or rather, the 'baccy-running tangent that spun off from it.

My worry is not so much the price or availability, it's more the practice by some companies of not hiring smokers. Some companies already do not permit their employees to use tobacco products, and I can see many employers following the same route. In the meanwhile, I'll continue to hoard...

I am trying to work in a reply using the Bistromath but cannot. I'm fairly disappointed.

Fine amount in your cellar. What have you focused on?

Or you can look at it this way --

The great 18th c. lexicographer Sam Johnson was known for his love of a good cut of beef. One Friday, he was sitting with friends in a favorite London tavern, devouring a cow, when a companion noted his compulsive attack on the steak, the perspiration and prominent veins on his forehead. The friend observed that he'd never seen a man enjoy his beefsteak more.

Johnson, a devout member of the Church of England, replied that when he ate a steak on Friday, he could be happier only if he were Catholic. "Why is that, sir?" asked the friend. "Because I would have both the pleasure of my steak and the pleasure of sinning," replied Johnson.

So it's possible we'll enjoy our pipes more.
