Do you have a cigarette?

 I don't smoke, but if I wanted to I would be in heaven. There are cigarette vending machines EVERYWHERE. Crazy, huh?

There isn't any ID required - just throw you money in the machine and out pops a pack of nicotine bliss. One of the MANY cultural differences over here. For those of you curious how much they are here, thanks to the skyrocketing Euro, they are about $8 a pack.

haha, that is very funny. and weird to compared to our "no-smoking" area, here in Canada. I don't smoke either (did, now don't) but i'm sure i would find a way to be fascinated by cigarette vending machines. i guess they will never make "healthy" vending machine.
love,
Jello

I saw those vending machines in ITaly. It's crazy the access they have there. I think our system is better with having ID. It saves some lives I feel.

Hi Nikki - crazy access is right. Wait till I do my nudity posting (advertisments and tv - not me personally :) ) It is so much more laid back here with things the US considers inappropriate or unhealthy.

Hi Jello! I haven't been to Canada in a long time, so I didn't know they had jumped on the non smoking band wagon too. I love the no smoking rule - it makes going out so much more enjoyable. Nothing worse than stinky clothes and hair.

I remember they used to have vending machines like these in tech school. Did you know gas, liquor and tobacco is rationed on the bases in Germany each month? You get a rations card. Apparently you can't go over your limit (but I think its pretty high for all) If you run out you have to buy on the economy.
