In some countries hand-rolling cigarettes is the only way for smokers to enjoy this vice, since commercial packs are very expensive for their budget. But for rich Americans, this product has become a matter of prestige. But not talking about classic rolling papers, but made of 24K gold. Shine Papers are 24K rolling papers combining edible gold leaf with a slow-burning interior paper.
Many people say that smoking 24-karat gold is the “smoking in style”, and WHO has not yet announced how much is unhealthy breathing gold particles. That didn’t stopped the wealthy smokers to burn their money. Prices range from $55 to $60 for a pack of 12, depending upon whether they are purchased directly from the company or on Amazon.com.
“It’s definitely not an everyday product because of the price point,” said Shine Papers owner Dave D., who declined to provide a last name. “But the people who feel like they are that person are showing a lot of support for it and returning to reorder.”
