Our local ones closed down a while back. I'm stuck rationing my pipe tobacco and primarily smoking cigars (which are still legal to mail order). The other option is to have a friend send you tobacco that you aren't purchasing from them--it's illegal to purchase shipped tobacco, but not to receive shipped tobacco.
I can legally receive shipped tobacco from out of state?
I had no idea!
I wish I had a lawyer..

(a) Ship or transport, or cause to be shipped or transported, any tobacco product ordered or purchased by mail or through the internet to anyone in this state other than a licensed wholesaler or retailer; or
(b) With knowledge or reason to know of the violation, provide substantial assistance to a person who is in violation of this section.
As long as it isn't "ordered or purchased by mail or through the internet" the prohibition to receive it by shipping doesn't apply.

I'd never suggest anything illegal and I certainly wouldn't post about it on the internet for all the world to see, but having a generous out-of-state friend is a blessing. CPS might be a good place to make such friends if you're interested in that sort of thing.
Yup. A lot of guys would be glad to help out. Perhaps Sir Moose could help with the shipping cost.

You know.... "How much is shipping?"
