Bugler (tobacco)

130px|thumb|right|A .65 oz pouch of Bugler tobacco. 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 became a subsidiary of Scandinavian Tobacco Group in 2011. 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", "Tailor Made" or pre-rolled cigarettes distributed by the major tobacco companies, has increased due to extremely high federal and state taxes.

The Chief said, and they all stopped talking then and turned to look at the corner of the quad where the guard bugler was raising his horn to the big megaphone to sound Tattoo.
