    Contact tobacco stores internationally directly as a supplier; find that list online. People will go to incredible lengths to save some $ on cigs.

    I'm not exactly sure on the price of a carton, but I'd imagine it's $25-$30. Not a bad margin.

    There is a (black) market opportunity available. I do not smoke, but I'm pretty sure all packs have a tax id stamp/sticker on them - don't they? This is to prevent people in NY going to KY and buying cheaper packs and taking them back to their store to resell.

    Unless you know someone who can buy these by the truck load, I wouldn't touch it. Not sure with you being in Afghanistan what kind of trouble, if any, you would run into. But if I was in the US I wouldn't touch it.

    Cigs, like alcohol are branded with excise tax stickers. Not sure if every country has that but most do. With that in mind, I doubt it would be possible to legally sell them on the internet.

    You might get into trouble...Cigaret smuggling or smth like that it's called here. If that would be so easy..everybody would go to.. let's say Russia and import cheap cigarets.

    Cigs and alchool are strictly regulated and I guess US has way more strict laws on that
