Hey guys. I'm thinking of starting my own cig making business. I started rolling my own cigs and I'm not bad at it. I'd like to keep them fairly clean like american spirits but still addictive to get customers hooked on them. What do you suggest? I realize vaping is kinda putting cigarette companies out of business but I'd still like to try
I don't even know where to start with this post.
Go slap your mother for her crimes first and come back to us.
just... step one, source a tabacco grower. step two, source paper that isn't acid bleached etc. Step 3 fiberglass filters. Step 4 roll. Step 5 fill out SO much paperwork and SO many filing fees and taxes to get inspected and licensed by the ATF or get RAPED.
Like 60% of of cig cost is taxes. NY has a $4.35 a pack tax, and NYC has a $1.50 on top of that.
and all the required by law surgeon general warnings. And the same inspections you pay for. and stores return boxes that are stale to you. and boxes 'fall off the truck' and you never get paid for them.
smuggled cig's sell about $0.50/ea, so unless you can reliably roll a cig every two minutes for hours every day, you'd probably make more at a minimum wage job (once you account for the time it takes to sell them, and the lack of insurance (health and unemployment) that you would have. Oh, and the EIC for income tax refund).
Try bullying, I know its frowned upon today but maybe you can find a loophole to worm through. I vape and smoke now, I might start drinking soon. This living on earth thing is a rough ride.
Shit thread but I feel I must tell my tale.
Working as a valet and this fucking ogre of a dude get assigned to my lot.
I notice he's smoking spirit blacks(perique gnarly af tobacco)
Dude turns to me and says "man these smokes are great, it's great that they're addictive-free!"
Me: "additive free?"
Him: "wut? I've been smoking a pack a day for a month thinking they weren't addictive...."
I was just gobsmacked.
