Get involved and take action to protect your rights to personal choice and cigar smoking.
Currently there are two bills that we need to support or the FDA will STOP your ability to enjoy a cigar.
Here's what's going on with the FDA, they want to:
- Ban on walk-in humidors, self serve cigar displays, and mail-order cigar sales;
- Ban on all flavored cigars, that are enjoyed by legal-age adults;
- Deface ornate and decorative cigar boxes, which are often considered an art form;
- Ban on cigar events where free cigars (samples) could be available to legal-age adults;
- Limits on cigar marketing and advertising;
- Imposition of new 'user fees' [tax] on cigars, to finance regulations;
- Limits on special release and small-batch cigars, due to mandates that cigar blends be submitted to FDA for pre-approval before release;
- Limits on nicotine levels on cigars to near zero, severely impacting the flavor of cigars;
- Ban on marketing cigar merchandise.

Don't want to get involved? You're too busy? Not my problem?
Just ask the folks in Calabasas, Santa Monica, and a few other cities where they all thought the same thing and NOW they cannot even smoke in their OWN HOMES without the fear of possible ticketing by the local authorities. Yes, that is right, ticketed in your own home because of Governmental rules.
