Anyway, then I ran into a little bit more money and started just smoking Djarum Blacks again. However, soon after, I immigrated to Vancouver, BC. Up here, my familiar Blacks have a tendancy to run about 15 dollars a pack, which is not a price I am willing to pay (given that I can get a 325ml of vodka for a little less :D). I thought I was just going to have to drop smoking, but then the idea of rolling my own came to mind again. After putting a few weeks of thought into it, I actually really love the idea of making my own cigarettes. I tend to come from somewhat of a punk background where a DIY ethic was pushed pretty hard, so this almost seems like the natural path for me to follow.
So, here's the deal: What tobacco is good up in Canada? And the cheaper the better. I have no credit card, so ordering from online isn't possible with most places and the few that do straight mail order never seem to be willing to ship up to Canada. Thus, I'm primarily looking into tobacco I can find locally.
Also, well... I am not exactly a talented person at hand-rolling. Typing, playing guitar and video games are about the only dextrous activities I partake in with my hands. I did, however, have decent luck with that little rolling machine. I've also seen a lot of people pushing injectors, which look nice, especially given my tendancy to prefer filtered cigarettes. However, I'm a n00b and don't totally understand injectors and am not sure how well they'd work with my clove blends. Educate me :D Essentially, in the opinion of people who are much more experienced, how good are those little rollers with the two cylinders (like what I've used in the past)? And with injectors, would they even work? And if so, would they be preferable?
If I end up going the route of handrolling/rolling machine, what papers are good & easy to find? And what seperates those from other papers? And if injectors are the way to go, what is good/easy to find in the way of tubes?
K, only one more question right now, I think: Anyone here ever tried their luck at rolling clove cigarettes? If so, any tips?
