Thanks Straightforward.  It's a bad habit I have - forgetting what I started to stay.

How did you know the 'start anywhere edit' in 'writing' was temporarily titled Smuggle Grubble?

The 'Day' was way, way before your time Pat.  You may find this hard to believe, but here in Ontario it is almost at the stage of the '20's.  No shops can display cigarettes and if you seem to be in your teens you must produce an identity card.  Not only that, you can only buy liquor or beer in the 'LCBO' (Liquor Control Board of Ontario).

If I drive for 5 minutes I'll be in Quebec and every corner shop has cigarettes and booze on display and on sale - just like it is in the UK.

Funny, we get mail from America wanting us to buy US drugs.  

The Doc is aggravating, Pat. Blog to follow.  Thanks for asking.

Our local news is the same, TAPS.  Thank goodness Canada is a - supposed to be - gun free country.

You're right, of course, sam444, but I must admit to considering making a quick buck in the past -but not in Canada, heaven forbid.  The problem here is - well actually there isn't any problem, it's just the high taxes.  Buying a carton of cigarettes can cost $90 and you can get a smuggled carton for $10.

You can see all the kids at school on the corners swapping smuggled cigarettes, and to save $80 I'd do the same - if I still smoked.

Sounds like ripe pickings
for a crime fiction. Just sayin..

Smuggling cigarettes? Back in the day it was whiskey.
"the day" would be during America's Prohibition, when someone thought it would be a good idea to criminalize drinking and drugs. Funny thing. I get junk mail every day wanting me to buy drugs from a Canadian pharmacy.  And what's this about the doc?  Say it's aggravating but not serious, Johnny Mac.

It seems that everyone is trying to make a quick buck just everywhere.  Our local news is just filled with craziness, as seems to be that of everyone else.

Now, will you be going to the auction when they unload the haul so to speak! lol Amazing what people risk for the chance at a quick buck! They never really make enough for it to be worth it in my humble opinion! sam
