Tax Free Roll Your Own Cigarettes Popular in TN

Nationally, there has been some controversy over the roll-your-own-smokes machines, because customers don't have to pay a cigarette tax. The state of Tennessee however, does not appear to be kicking up a fuss over it.

Smokes 4 Less on Western Avenue advertises up to 50% off a carton of cigarettes. Customer Erica Smith was making a carton. She says she's never going back to traditional cigarettes. "Because they burn longer, slower and they are cheaper," Smith said.

Essentially a customer is buying the loose tobacco and the empty cigarette tubes. Then they pay to use the machine that puts the two together.
