Yes, you can still find them. They're not as easily found because smoking isn't as popular as it use to be.

There are many ways you can make them. It really depends on what kind of dropper you want and how many you are planning on stealing from it.
I won't go into much detail but if you are only going to be producing a small number of them, then simple clip type droppers will do. Even stealing from the pocket or sleeving can be used for this.

For the more elaborate droppers first try to places Stanyon suggested. I believe Tom Mullica mentioned them in his cigarette magic videos too.

There was also a pretty neat home made cigarette dropper in AM/PM magazine (I think that's where I saw it). So maybe contact them about a back issue. The dropper I saw there was made out of a cigarette box.

Another tip is to use the fake cigarettes that you can find at magic dealers and novelty stores. I believe they are called "puff Smoke" cigarettes. They look lit and are filed with a powder. When you blow into them it looks like smoke is coming out. Lance Burton makes use of these in one of his acts too.
With these you can produce 4 or 5 real cigarettes with the old thumb palm method. After that you just keep producing the fakes and no one will know the difference.

Hope that helps.

Good luck

After regaining my ability to hear after 20 years of deafness. I learned that there is magic all around you. The simplest sounds that amazed me you probably ignore. Look and listen around you right now. You'll find something you didn't notice before.
