Yes, transporting 25 tons of cocaine from the docks across the border has been a lot trickier. Just kidding, lmao.

I had a friend who was stopped for trying to transport "cigarettes" < - seriously, across the border... They cleaned out his entire vehicle & he was forced to toss EVERYTHING out if he wanted to cross the border.

For some reason which I don't understand, they charged him $200.00 or so for "something"

A search fee?

Yeah the least expensive I can find starts at about $8.00

Here are a few brands that sell in my area that I can think of off the top of my head;

Players
Benson & Hedges <- my fav
Peter Jackson <- What I smoke, lol
Export -A-
Accords
Craven "A"
Du Maurier
Matinee
Medallion

Any of them sound familiar?

They sell a brand I like in Ontario, I forget what it's called.

OH YEAH! They are called, "Belmonts" or something.

they still have some cheap ones here.
bronco's are like 2 bucks a pack.
there are a bunch of generic brands around 2 bucks.
i wonder if i would get in trouble for sending you some cartons?
my former business partner owns 3 cigarette stores, and gives me whatever i want. i used to trade my neighbor cartons of cigarettes to take me hunting with him. haha
