If you can afford to...and if you won't get arrested for doing it. Doesn't matter what you are smoking these days, it's gonna cost a bit to buy it. And the legalities involved in smoking it...hell, I think Marijuana is more socially acceptable these days than tobacco. But paying anywhere from $5-$7 a pack (or more) for cigarettes is crazy...but I still do it. 20 times more expensive than when I used to go to the store for Mom and get her a pack when I was a kid...only $0.35 a pack back then. And weed? I haven't bought a large quantity for years, but back when I first started, it was $15 a lid (that's what they used to call an ounce, more or less). Now it's a few hundred for good stuff. Cigarettes, the cause for most of that is taxes, plus a little inflation. Weed? It sure isn't from taxes. I'm gonna have to just start pulling grass out of the lawn and smoking it if it gets much worse.
Got me a woman, wont toke about it Says she doesnt need it, she can do without it If I try to push it, shell say shove it! Baby if ya tried it maybe you migh...

@JolietJake You are right about that. Remember when free air and water was part of the service?

Same here. I recall when my grandpa bought a carton of cigs for about $4. Almost forty five or so now for my daughter to get one. Now that amount seems crazy. I payed the same for a lid of pot. Haven't bought any in several decades now. I get mine for free.

The price of gasoline in Europe is so high because 90% are taxes. In Italy some are ridiculous, because they have no more sense to exist, but they still are there, like a very little percentage to cover the cost of the "Abissinia War" of 1935. (NO I am not kidding).

Kids around here occasionally try smoking all sorts of odd stuff - often with pretty tragic results.
