Our tobacco is not technically a tobacco product, nor is it processed tobacco. It is a raw agricultural commodity with stem and whole leaf in-tact, and is therefore not taxable as roll-your-own, pipe, or otherwise.
Please note, state laws vary from state to state. Leaf Only follows Connecticut state law, where whole leaf tobacco is NOT taxable as a tobacco product.
But that's NOT What Makes It Great!
For those of you that are here only to save money, you're missing out on the true meaning of Leaf Only and whole leaf tobacco. Being able to make your own blends and tobacco products brings a joy to the crafter that can neither be bought nor sold.
To say, "I am smoking my own hand rolled cigar" or "This is a custom natural cigarette blend made specifically for my taste" is something that implies a level of gratification that reaches far beyond the modern conception of "tobacco".
