    Always hate to hear things like this. Times like these I'm thankful for my decent cellar.

    Growing it should be easy enough. Processing, curing, and the whole art of getting into a pipe for an enjoyable smoking experience is the key.

    Russ, growing your own has really heavy penalties, I'm pretty sure its $100's of thousands of dollars fine and jail time for growing or possession of seeds. With regard to whats available, well its limited. We only have 2 reputable tobacconist in the whole country now that I'm aware of, both in Melbourne and the tax added to the product plus a margin makes holding stock a very costly exercise I would think.

    Seem to remember you have some very strict alcohol laws as well? What's going on?
    Haha Crawford, don't think any where is like Australia on tobacco. Alcohol is slowly being taxed higher but its done on alcohol volume. So I have read where the micro breweries making really good beer and spirits are being taxed to oblivion because their products have higher alcohol content.

    Cellaring is the key Corndog, I wished mine was deeper but more importantly to others, fill it up whilst you can!

    And the new laws came in a few days ago. Anyone caught importing tobacco by mail risks a possible 10years prison sentence.
    Unbelievable from a pipe smoker to a criminal with the stroke of a pen.
