Myself and my boyfriend have smoked (Marl reds) for a long time now. We buy them a few packs at a time each, approx. 2 x's a week. About a month to a month and a half ago we started geting bad ciggs and its remained that way ever since. I began buying from different stores but it didn't matter. Its like that everywhere I go. I do not know what would be causing this, but its frusterating and I am going to have to start trying other brands. It would be nice to just get the problem fixed, and if some sort of compensation could be made, then you would have a garantee of keeping me and him as your customers. Thank you for your time.
