es seen too man of those utopian movies with the perfect society and everyone wearing white and obeying the rules without question, without the understanding that those are actually dystopian societies for everyone not in power.

back on track have you tried that local rope tobacco? I hear that’s easier to get on Facebook and places, while not the best it is tobacco.
hmm ill have to look at that but last time i tried searching for local tobacco i couldnt find anything, all just went back to NZ law websites en stuff.

Living in Switzerland I can say it is a really great place to live, in many ways because everyone obeys the rules without question. The thing is that many of these rules are actually quite pragmatic and less restrictive than in many places. If you do break them there's guaranteed trouble though ?

Hi there i made another post but i think it might be in the wrong place, anyway i was wondering if anyone from New Zealand had any tips on how they get pipe tobacco? i cant imagine people are actually paying $159 for 50g...if you have any tips on what site to use for importing or maybe even how i could use this site to get tobacco would be very welcome, i await your messages with excitement!

Yea sadly we have a very silly MP and she loves to be in the spot light.
Our country is super peaceful and doesnt have any huge threats or wars but shes really asking for it by getting
involved with big world problems. Just recently shes changed alot of laws on speeding because a few people crashed in a 80km zone....she wants to lower 80 zones to 50-60 and make New Zealand death free from crashes and such by 2025, while also banning smoking and outlawing it by 2025 as well...
If thigs had turned to that bad where I live ,in all probability,I would have started planning on leaving the country pronto,

Why: It will save time for others as to where you live when you mention local stores, weather, tobacco prices, availability, regulations, location of photos, wildfires, air quality, etc. In many instances that saves time for those who read your posts, and for you in not having to reply to inquiries. .

Under your avatar, (top right, left most of three symbols) you choose "Account Details", which brings up "My Account". "My Location" is halfway down. Whatever you're comfortable with- town, city, county, state. province, etc.

Seems a lot of these f@ckers in positions of power have seen the whole lot of them.

Jacinda seems to make up some shit at the drop of a hat.
One COVID case, shut the country down! Jeez.
By 2025 she wants to have no tobacco in NZ and it will be made illegal to buy any.
Im sure you can grow your own still because that law hasnt changed but selling and buying is gonna
be illegal. She also wants to have no crashes/deaths on the road by 2025 so she has lowered the speed
limit in alot of places that dont need it, 80kh zones going down to 50kh and so on.

Just wait until she tells you the plan for 2030. It's happening everywhere though.. it's a matter of pushing back where you can, when you can.
