We hope to see new laws which will restrict all use of the US mail to deliver tobacco or any tobacco related product.
It's just a matter of time till we get such laws enacted.
We're also looking into requiring a export permit($$$$$$$$$ for any tobacco products taken off Indian property. Remember, most Indian tribes claim to be nations.

Life is getting better for us non-smokers all the time.
You ask why?
Well they are getting better because; New City, County and State restrictions on smokers and smoking are happening all the time.
It must really suck to be a nicotine addicted cigarette smoking sucker.

Please remember the request for more laws when they finally come for you. You'll be the fist to squeal when they get around to you. Read the history of the Nazi's, it started with more and more laws. Remember, be careful what you ask for, you just might get it. If you think they'll stop at tobacco, you are a fool of the first magnitude.

Thank you. They are just too short sighted to see that. It amazes me.
