  1. Bugler

    Bugler is the name of a roll-your-own brand of tobacco and rolling papers. The Bugler brand was first introduced in the United States in 1932 by Lane Limited. Lane is a subsidiary of the American Snuff Company, which is itself a division of Reynolds American. According to recent market surveys, Bugler is the #2 selling brand of rolling tobacco in the United States, and is the #1 tobacco in American prisons. It competes heavily with the brand TOP. Each pouch of Bugler includes .65 oz. tobacco and 32 cigarette papers. Bugler differentiates itself from its chief competitors in that its tobacco consists of a premium "Turkish and domestic blend", which is similar to the same claim advertised by the higher-priced factory made brand Camel. Bugler has recently changed their rolling papers from thick papers to a newer, thinner paper which is interleaved. Bugler paper booklets are also sold individually as a stand alone product. Since the beginning of the 21st century, the retail cost of "Ready Rolled", or pre-rolled cigarettes distributed by the major tobacco companies, has increased due to extremely high federal and state taxes.
