EEK! re: Purchase of cigarettes online

Is it legal to purchase ciggarettes fromoutside of the United States and have them imported into the states?
Because I have seen some cites say that it is. But i saw somewhere that in 2004 it was legal. But that was 5 years ago so maybe things have changed...

Some states have enacted laws that restrict the sale and shipment of cigarettes over the Internet to consumers in that state. For example, it is illegal for Internet vendors to ship cigarettes or cause cigarettes to be shipped to consumers in New York State. Moreover, a number of states have enacted age-verification laws to ensure that minors do not purchase cigarettes illegally over the Internet. Depending on where you live, it may be illegal for a delivery service to simply leave a package of cigarettes in your mailbox when you're not at home.

In addition, under federal law, it is illegal for Internet vendors or consumers to cause most branded cigarettes to be imported into the United States. Cigarettes that are imported illegally into the United States are subject to seizure and destruction, without compensation to the purchaser.

Not sure beyond this

For about 5 years I using DiscountCigarettesMall.com for buying my cigs. I live in NY and don't have any problems with them because they don't report any information regarding client' purchases.

Smile Re: Purchase of cigarettes online

I use to buy Marlboro lights online from discount.cigarettes-cigars.com at a very convenient price and I'm happy with my purchases.
I purchased from different sites before and lost a lot of money as my goods were stooped at Customs. The site I order at the moment ships from UK so no problems occur at customs.

Thumbs Up Re: Purchase of cigarettes online

Hi everyone, I saw you have a very interesting subject in discussion. Buy cigarettes online is interesting since is much cheaper and almost everyone does it. Especially in the USA where the cigarettes are so expensive.I think ordering is legal. I am a client of Mycigaretteshop.com for a while and I am very pleased with their support team and high quality products. Want to say that now I have a discount of 5% there, cause I have bought more than 3 times.

There seems to be less and less places that you can turn to online to find the right things that you need. We have the relationships that have been forged decades ago. We embrace the new with the advent of the electrical cigarettes and the new lines of cigars. That was awesome! Probably one of the more interesting reads in awhile.
