    Teens don't smoke anymore, prices are through the roof, constant anti smoking commercials, vaping.

    Is it over? Industry had been around for hundreds of years

    Cigarettes suck. I roll my own... American Spirit organic tobacco.

    Cheaper and no rat poison.

    Time for the tobacco companies to switch their operations over to weed.

    No- down but not out yet. An example: Skoal was almost dead, used by a few old southern black men, until advertising tied it with rodeos. Now, sales are high, there are many secondary companies making the product. Leave it to good old American advertising to bring cigs back.

    I don't like American spirits, but I make my own as well. I buy bulk tobacco and filters online. I pay about a $1/pack or less. Here's what I've noticed. If I leave a pack of home made smokes out over night they'll go stale. I've found that regular cigarettes can take days to go stale. Which obviously means there's something in there other than just tobacco.

    Smoking sucks. Way too many people still smoke in Las Vegas. Also, the pot places are all over now.
