    The pertinent/funny bit starts around 10:10 minutes in... :puffy:



    I wouldn't worry too much about it myself and probably just chalk it up as a 'sign of the times'.

    As in lowered expectations and ready preparedness for disappointment. :rolleyes: :oops:

    California is different but it goes like this.
    Between State and Federal taxes, B&M's pay over 50% of their Gross.

    I suspect a lot of B&M's are feeling the pinch and are "cutting overhead" (freebies).

    The only one I've been to around here will give samples. The last time I was in there, they gave me a sample of their house VA, four bowls later and I've still got a few bowls left. They offered me as many samples as I wanted, but I didn't want to try anything else. They even had open tins of several name brands they used for sampling.

    Hey at least you guy's have a B&M that actual has quality pipe tobacco. I went into a local smoke shop just to see if they had any pipe tobacco. He pulled out a big bag of Bull Durham and something else of equal size that was menthol. :doh:

    I knew that was comming. I'm sure it's a good smoke but it was a huge bag. If Sam's Club sold pipe tobacco it would come in this size.
