A tiny amendment buried in the federal transportation bill signed today by Obama will put operators of roll-your-own cigarette operations in Las Vegas and nationwide out of business.

Robert Weissen, with his brothers and other partners, own nine Sin City Cigarette Factory locations in Southern Nevada, including six in Las Vegas, and one in Hawaii. He said when the bill is signed their only choice is to turn off their 20 RYO Filling Station machines and lay off more than 40 employees.

    A Founding Father
    OMG, here is an industry that employs millions that will be destroyed. They were rolling cigarettes in order to avoid the taxes imposed on such things to help pay for the disease and deaths they cause, and now they must go "underground" with the pot operations. Damn, that Obama is just everywhere these days. How does he do this with
    all the vacation days and campaigning he is doing, how does he discover these little operations of growing pot and boiling meth from cough medicines? You would think he would provide some "bail out" money and encourage these smokers to stay in business and make some lung disease and cancers, wouldn't you?
