Its equally as expensive here with a loophole for native reserve cigarettes. Theyre supposed to be illegal for non-native residents to buy but its rarely enforced.
It's so stupid. Alcohol is equally insanely highly taxed here, too. But guess what? Apart from cigarette sales declining slightly due to vaping, tobacco sales overall have not change and alcohol sales have even gone UP. So the stupid taxes aren't making people stop drinking or smoking, they're making people who smoke or drink poorer. Or have to go without food or heat.
