i just received this school internal email:

"We wish to highlight to students that smuggling or possession of duty-unpaid cigarettes or any contraband is a very serious offence. Offenders can be jailed and fined. .........."

apparently they found out about the illegal cigarette dealer opposite school. he loiters around the pavillion near the football field, and sells contraband cigarettes to eager buyers at $5/- a pack. i do have friends who are his customers.
However myself, i do taxed cigarettes. so i'm a responsible citzen! don't i deserve more GST Refund on July 1, 2007?

How to identify and differentiate a contraband cigarette? The stick itself looks perfectly normal, however sometimes can be a little flimsy on the rolling. the outer box does not have a health warning picture (of rotting gums, jaws, babies) on the cover. and a packet of marlboro costs about $10.70 to $11.00 compared to a contraband one that costs $5.00.
