Markets in Everything: Roll-Your-Own Cigarettes

“A South Carolina store owner said smokers can get cigarettes without paying state and federal taxes because of a tax loophole. M.J. Farah, owner of Jake’s One Stop in Pelzer, South Carolina is offering customers the chance to roll their own cigarettes.
“The customers are taking advantage of a tax cut. They don’t have to pay the taxes on the tobacco if they are making it on their own,” said Farah. “I have people who drive all the way up here 45 minutes just to come get their tobacco.”

Farah recently got three new machines that stuff the cigarettes for customers. He was already selling roll-your-own supplies, but the new machines are less time-consuming and still save smokers money.”
