PS the links won't work since i just copy/pasted the parts from the website. See TSA | Transportation Security Administration | U.S. Department of Homeland Security for more info
PS2 I looked everywhere on the website, as well as my own airline reference manual, and asking co-workers, for info regarding the amount of cigarrettes you can bring on your person/pack in a carry-on or checked bag and can find ZERO info saying it's OK or not. I believe this is a customs thing, and is airline specific if there are any restrictions, you'd need to call directly if you need to know this sort of thing.
ANY QQQ on items not covered, please ask and I will do my best to get you the info!
