    So, if a can of snus at retail is $3.00 dollars and the wholesale price what? maybe $1.50 and 70% for my state of MN would be $1.05.

    That really is not as bad as I thought.
    Yeah, 50% here in Iowa isn't so bad either, guess we will learn what wholesale is lol.

        The fact you can pass a 90% tax on something is insane in the first place. That is not a tax, that is outright stepping into the middle of a transaction, charging double and then taking half as your cut FOR DOING NOTHING but allowing it to happen. It's like the mob man.

          Washington State ushered in a $1 increase to our existing tobacco tax on May 1st. I have not checked the price of General at the shop a block from my office, but I dropped $9.41 the other day for a pack of cigs for my girlfriend at 7-Eleven. Nine dollars and 41 cents. I need to take break from work for a sec, I'm going to go check the price on a can of General. Be right back...

          Edit: Still only $7.99 for a can of snus lol. I asked him again how they are selling, and he said he gets a new shipment in every week. Several rolls. I wonder who is buying this stuff for 250% more than online? Crazy. He said the original portions, white, and Wintergreen were the big sellers. I scored a sample of the regular size Mint ones. Nothing special imo.

              I remember being horrified at the Canadian cigarette costs when they were ~$5 a pack. They were about $1.50 here at the time. I think MD is about $5 a pack now, but I haven't paid attention to the prices in awhile :^S

                  I wonder what the online price for us will be once PACT goes into effect. I know the latest chart I saw had snuff down as 286.9 cents per oz. This is I believe above and beyond the regular sales tax.

                  24 grams = 0.846575087 ounces, 0.846575087 * 286.9 = 242.882392 or $2.42 tax added. So if a current can is $2.60, plus 9.5% sales tax, plus $2.42, we should be looking at around $5.26 per can (or $52.60 per roll) which is still considerably cheaper than the $80 bucks per roll we pay locally.

                  That's my take anyway, I could be wrong.

                    I like your take on it CoderGuy, I mean, $5.26 strikes me as pretty steep after paying ~$3 for quite a while, but it's better than $8. Question: You buy rolls from Tobacco Patch? That's crazy son. I've never even bought one can from those guys, but I do love their stores, and I've bought plenty of cigars and even some cigs (cough - not lately though) I just don't have any reason to, and I don't like General.

                      I don't buy from them, I buy from GetSnus, but I know how much a can is and a roll is 10x that so it's an approximation.

                        Does anyone know what the wholesale price is? If not I guess we will find out when we see what the state tax works out to be.

                          Something tells me that they will find some way to round up the wholesale price rather than charge tax on the real wholesale price. Most distributors don't want you to know what their wholesale price is and my guess is the states will look the other way if the taxes work out in their favor. I would probably figure about 3 to 4 bucks a can as being wholesale to be on the safe side but I hope I am wrong about that.

                            Several Missouri legislatures want to make it worse for us, but the folks representing rural "Missurah" fight it every time.

                                First time I don't mind living in Alabama. At .9 ounces per can, what do that come to? Almost nothing? I can live with that.
