Default Cheap cigarettes long island

Are the Indian reservations in suffolk still in the cigarette business?
I need several cartons. I'm a social smoker but go through them quick when I drink and play poker with the boys. Sick of paying $10 a pack , this 100% unconstitutional tax to support the NY pensioners. What reservations are open for biz??

Yes there are Indian reservations that still sell cigarettes in Mastic. My neighbor goes there to get hers. Sometimes she gets a deal on them, 2 cartons for 30 bucks. She smokes a brand called Warrior which is equivilant to a parliment light. you said you are a social smoker? Sounds like more of a chain smoker to me. I used to smoke socially but I smoked a 1 pack a week. Do your lungs a favor and try to quit.

They do if it is cheaper to buy them by the carton.....cigarettes don't go bad in a few days like a carton of milk, FYI.

lol...this thread went so off-topic as most others do. Your question has been answered...go to the reservation out in Mastic and buy your carton of ciggs and be happy. Last time I was there most mainstream brand cigarettes were about 50-60 a carton. You get get no-name ones as cheap as 25-30 dollars a carton.

Ten bucks a pack? That's what cancer sticks are going for these days?

Is that how much cigarettes really cost? I remember when they were 35 cents a pack= $3.50 a carton. Why would anyone pay $100.00 for a carton of cigarettes?

While the Poospatuck reservation is surrounded by the Hamlet of Mastic it is not in the Hamlet of Mastic, nor is it in the Town of Brookhaven. In New York State, counties are divided into cities, towns and Indian reservations.

Be prepared to see the slums of mastic there. I was there on business and there was all sorts of illegal activity going on right in front of me. Dont be surprised if you get mugged.

not to stray off topic but if you have ever been on the reservation in mastic most of the people who live there aren't even native American and they are living tax free.
