It's to sell to the general public. The Indian has been playing "piss on the white man" for years. They aren't supposed to do it, but they do and they know that nobody will do anything about it. Their fireworks stands are the same way. They know where people are taking them, they know that it is illegal, but they do it anyway.

I don't believe it's illegal is my point--at least in the areas around here.
As for the viewpoint of who's doing which to whom, I think there's some history there, perhaps?

Living right next to an Indian reservation, I will tell you, it IS illegal unless they are paying the same taxes as everyone else. History is just that, history. No one living today was involved in any of this "history". Live for the time.

That's not quite the same question as was posed earlier...

Hard to completely forget the past...I find it remarkable, frankly that as many come as close to doing so as do. My BIL the Cherokee is pretty much in the vein you describe albeit w/ some very definite traits owing to his heritage. Others, not quite so much so.

Not quite...first implied it was illegal to sell to anyone other than Indians, as opposed to not collecting same tax from various customers...

No, not really. Just pointing out there's some basis for them not being all that happy about the way things are...

any taxes. Yes, one could open a smoke shop on a reservation and charge the taxes and it would be perfectly legal. Unfortunately, the shop would go out of business in short order :-).
Untaxed tobacco is legally for sale only to tribal members - a "sovereign nation" in the law.
That's why the states go after the purchasers and not the sellers - the sellers are outside their jurisdiction. There may be some exceptions to that, I'm not familiar with the wording of all (or any) of the pertinent treaties.

They were assimilated to their societies hundreds of years ago.
"Toss out who you are and where you came from... and become like one of us?"
There are other peoples on this planet, right now, who aren't too keen on that imposition either. To them, being the victims of conquest is the rule of today. I guess if we wait long enough, the apologies are no longer required/expected?
Then again, I could just be talking through my hat.... but it all depends on how you look at things, eh?

Think you will find the Canucks have a little different perspective on this issue than the folks here in the US do.
Swapped a few lies and a lot of cold ones one Saturday night trying to resolve this issue with a fellow sailor, who happened to be a Canuck while in his home port.
He made some very interesting points that I have long since forgotten.

Different gummints, different problems.
A blog worth reading if you're interested the issue here in (western) Canuckistan is <http://www.dustmybroom.com/ . Native POV but without the "I'm a viictim" attitude.

Change is a constant.

"Toss out who you are and where you came from"? You mean living in a slum or do you mean the way they were 150 years ago? One's undesirable, the other impossible.

I have nothing to apologize for and, unless you are 150 years old, neither do you.

I like winter more than palmetto bugs and H O T muggy summers.

Is it where the FBI has all the best jobs earmarked?
I get 13 an hour here in the UK but that is site work and on a self employed short term contract basis. Shop work is traditionally lower waged. But you'd get 8 an hour or more to start. Not many joiners would take it on even if they were strapped.
And you would not have to find your own health insurance, dental treatment and that sort of thing. And there are usually bonus incentives.
But I think a few lads would take it on if they could get a permit to work in Florida. And be daft enough to come in the summer too.
