Do You Go Out of Your Way To Get Cheaper Cigarettes? [POLL]

Two men were recently charged with smuggling nearly four hundred cartons of cigarettes over the George Washington Bridge. According to,

Sadeq Abdo A. Abdulla, 28, of Delano, Cal., and Tariq A, Aklsayedi, 32, of New York City, were stopped by PAPD officers at 8:02 a.m. on Monday, while they were driving in the high occupancy lane of the bridge, the Port Authority said. The HOV lane requires at least three occupants per car.

The officers asked the men what they had in two large cardboard boxes in the back seat of the car, and then became suspicious when the men told them canned goods.

Police then asked the men to open the boxes, and discovered they were cigarettes, the Port Authority said. At that point, officials said, the men’s hopes of pocketing the proceeds from the tax-free sale of the cigarettes to Bronx bodegas went up in smoke.

As the price of cigarettes go up in New Jersey and around the country, smokers are willing to try no ways to get their hands on their fix for a lower price. Do you go out of your way to do the same? Take our poll and leave your thoughts in the comment section below.
