    i know there are sorts of restrictions on guns, and ammo. but we resale unused ammo and guns online. so would it be illegal to sell unused tobacco? or trade unused tobacco for other items?

    say my father-in-law yells "buy me some smokes while your out". i think his brand is marb, but he smokes camels. i buy a carton, because im a rich bastard :p and a nice guy, of marb. he says no way cant touch it...well i know i could give them away. but whats to stop me of trading a carton (around 125$ or more) for some ammo, mre's or etc..

    im sure in a private deal where i tell a guy at the bar ive got a carton ill make a deal on with him, no one cares. but what if on this site i post it as trade and say i want ammo? is the ATF going to come bust down my door?

    You already paid the 80% or whatever it is WA state tobacco tax so do with them what you like.

    Trade for ammo, gas, cash, whatever. Awful nice of you to buy the ol' man a whole carton though, damn.

    The point was are you able to trade it like any other item.. Tobacco is so regulated I wasn't sure.

    So you can sell food and alcohol, but not cigarettes. But it doesn't say anything about trading. Although being so desperate floor cigarettes to trade for them may make someone decide to quit.

    When I was overseas in Italy a pack of fresh, PX Marlboros would return a lot in 'trade'

    That's a good point. It does mention that food and alcohol must pertain to local laws.. So why would cigarettes not be allowed? I would think since state laws still prohibit selling of MJ it wouldn't be allowed. Maybe I can still cigarettes because resales aren't allowed. But the why alcohol and guns?
