20 cigarettes in a pack, 10 packs in a carton, 4 cartons, sounds like a smuggler to me. Not a lot for a pack a day smoker. Did they also have untaxed gas in their cars? If you're shopping at the rez, learn the back roads.

Yeah and don't speed. When I was there a while ago (not buying anything) I seen that they had a sign out that said to put all cigarettes in the trunk and don't smoke until you are far away from the Rez. I guess smoking is probable cause to get stopped.
Does the cop collect the tax on the spot (lauging at) how ridiculous this is, Deputy Reeves must not have any drunk drivers to pull over!!!
The tax and then some is collected when they see the judge.
If he goes and pays the taxes of the cigs will be get them back??? wonder what happens to them after they take them away from the person that paid for them!?
