  • they just started one of these in our town a few months ago. they have two machines in the shop you have to weigh your own tabacco load the machine yourself and sit and wait for it to roll them. it takes about fifteen minutes for l98 cigerettes. youi have to do it yourself and they only guarantee up to 199 cigerettes because if they did it for you and got more than l99 they would have to tax you on them the business is actually going really well i think he could make money at it. if i can get any info on it for you i will message me in a few days and i will see what i can do

  • To start any business you need a business plan, a marketing plan, to legal register as a business, get a tax id number, buy licences, get a business bank account, buy inventory, set up a website, get a business phone number and advertise profusely.

    Is there a market for this in your area? Would be be able to compete against big name cigarette manufacturers? Would he be able to afford to pay for all the licences and be able to abide by all the government regulations.

    Honestly, I think this is a bad idea for a homebased business. If he plans on opening up a factory or a store, then maybe.

  • I am with a company that sells smokeless cigarettes... He can even sell to tobacco shops and make a profit off of their sales with our company... GreenSmoke

    Seriously, he's not forcing anyone to smoke. But if people choose to smoke, he might as well profit from it!
