I've never been to Homer but in Ketchikan it like $5 a pack, and when I smoked (7 months ago... I'm free) A lot of stores sold buy one get one free promotional packs, which where great if you didn't mind what brand you smoke.

When I quit smoking weed (8 months ago... I'm Free) it was $25 a gram, $125 or $150 a quarter oz. in Ketchikan and once you step out of K-town the price can jump up to $50 a gram. You can however grow your own.

Sounds to me like the only alternative is growing your own.

If you are going to be smoking it you might as well grow your own. Then you will still be able to buy food and gas if prices really get bad. Although it might be handy to have a clear head in hard times.

Ahhhh, you bring a smile to my face. I quit Camels last July but eating "brownies" is always a great way to brighten one's day.

yup, and impotent and sterile as well if that study I read proves to be right.

Just drove through part of the Yukon, and cigarrettes were $12.00 per pack at the roadhouse in Beaver Creek If THAT don't get you to quit, you must be well and truely hooked...yikes.
