A new cigarette-rolling machine that's being marketed to liquor stores may soon be outlawed in Oregon. The machine uses pipe tobacco, which has a much lower tax rate than regular cigarettes. Critics fear it'll raise the number of teenage smokers. But machine owner Dan Miner says his customers aren't kids: ”So far I’ve met a couple that are in their 70’s and they ride the bus down to my story and they enjoy the cost savings.” A pack-a-day smoker could save more than $80 a month using the machine. Right now there's only one in Oregon, at the Hollywood Liquor Store.
