There's an article on it in "haotzer" vol 43 by Rav Shlomo lenitzner? On the topic. Although some disagree with his conclusion.
Pm me if you want the pdf
also in vol 37, i want to know what mainstream poskim hold
i find that what's written there can be said about cigarettes as well

Why did Reb Moshe consider voting an expression of hakaras hatov to America?
I no longer have constant Internet access, so you won't be seeing quite as much of me.

Vaping on a fast day. Any thoughts or sources?
I was wondering about that myself.
Whether you think you can or you think you cannot, you're right.

This is classic Taos Akum.

I would even argue that in this case you can surely keep it even more than in a case at a register in a store. Since in that case the person behind the register would remember you and also it is clear that you are Jewish, therefore, if you returned the money it would be a Kiddish Hashem whereas by BBB or Marriott you would be calling them and there would be no Kiddish Hashem in returning it and telling them about the mistake.

I hear from the kiddush hashem standpoint, but why would it be so simple from the point of keeping it?  I still never really got the “money”, I only got something worth money that if I don’t use, they won’t lose money....so it’s like I still have to do a extra maisah to take it now....

Shatnez necessary on Indochino suits?
It seems that @Dan implied that some Rabbonim hold it's fine not to check, as they have consistently been shatnez-free.

That is a pasuk used to say that when it is easy to do it right don't try to get away without it. Even though me'ikar hadin you probably do not need to check it you should still do it. If you want to wear it and it wasn't checked yet I wouldn't worry about it but would get it checked later.
