    Hopefully they don't smoke

    When i'm searching a person or vehicle, either with consent, due to an arrest, or with probable cause from odor or sight, I check every cigarette carton I come across by pulling a few out. This would definitely fail that test.

    It's not a bad idea, I think police are trained to check for these types of things but police can also be lazy or absent minded so it couldn't hurt unless of course there is some draconian law out there to punish you if your caught doing this.

    its doesnt work in Russia :D

    Neat idea, but when my car was broken into, the only thing stolen was a pack of cigarettes...

    This safe is not so safe. Cigarettes are being taxed tremendously, here in New York. It now costs about $12 a pack.
    Don't be surprised if the next time a thief breaks in, he will steal all of your cigarettes, even if there is no other valuables to steal.

    And, the NYPD looks inside your cigarette packs. (Luckily, they found nothing in mine.)

    Well if you are a minor, how are you going to get the cigarettes? They cannot be sold to minors

    "Thief-safe" ?
    I guess you hide your smartphones in a dvd-player-like safe ?

    Aww damn! I thought of this idea years ago to bring pot into a concert, but I never followed up on it. OH WELL! Great minds think alike! Great instructable too, keep up the good work.

    However, thanks for the instructable it looks cool.

    hmm... I would definitely do this if i was legal to actually carry cigarettes. i like it. :)

    Where is it illegal to carry cigars? :o Anyway, what about a pack of gum? A pack of gum with a faux bottom where you can hide a few bills and coins. And you can still use the box to save gum :3

     i saw a video ages ago on metacafe that showed you how to make a can of coke where the top screws off, you might like that one a little more being under aged...

    The difference between "police" and "thief" is divided by a very fine line. If you are taking something from somebodies home without the OWNERS' permission it is still wrong and unethical, no mater what reason or warrant. But the cops and being unethical and using cloak and dagger to get what they like is nothing new, it is their bread and butter.

    I think that you have been watching too many cop shows...

    Unfortunately, he's right. Most cops nowadays are just thugs with badges.
