Skip to comments.The End Of Cigars We We Know Them? (Pending FDA Ban -- act now to oppose!)

FDA regulations will force manufacturers to spend upwards of six-figures just to get new a blend approved. Your favorite boutique cigar brands will wither and die, leaving only the largest manufacturers to introduce a new blend or two per year.
Don't expect to sample those new blends, either: free samples will be illegal, as well as cigar events. And even if you're brave enough to buy a box sight unseen, the FDA is likely to mandate near-zero levels of nicotine. How do you suppose THAT cigar will taste?
Surely the Founding Fathers are spinning in their graves! When a government acts against its citizens' interests, it's time to make your voice heard. Urge your Senator and Representative to support the Traditional Cigar Manufacturing and Small Business Jobs Preservation Act today, and stop the FDA from

What exactly is a flavored cigar? Those should be banned just on principle.
Please tell me this is a joke.............even if it’s not.

I was a big cigar fan, till I started Vaping. Much better tasting, and no nitrosamines. I tried to smoke a cigar last week, and I couldn’t handle it.
Anyway, I know some will only want the real deal anyway, but that’s been my experience, thought I’d share.
I admit to loving the light up process and puffing it to get it going, but that is mostly my obsession w/fire I think :)
I’ve never smoked so much as a single cigar or cigarette in my life, and I find this anti-smoking hysteria to be absurd.
You've obviously neverhad a good Drew Estate cigar. The tobaccos are aged in various spices, and result in some very unique, distinctive sticks.
Margaret Hamburg's image?
Was pretty good actually....I'd buy one again.
Electronic cigarettes. You don’t smoke them, you “vape” them. It’s basically water vapor with nicotine in it. Hence, “to vape.”
Acid Kuba Kuba for one ...
My wife has graduated to nicotine-free vapors.
She tried to quit smoking for 35 years, nothing worked.
The electric cigarettes helped her to stop almost immediately.
Federal Government - destroying business since 2008.
if you smoke Drew Estate Acid cigars you’re....
...man, whatever, those things are fem and nasty.
Drew Estate..... yes sir! Big fan. I fervently hope the FDA does not attack cigars. I expect they will, since that’s what government does... attack freedom and private property. You never know, Obama’s fighting for his life. If he was smart, he’d have his bureaucrats scale back on this type of foolishness.
Electronic cigarettes saved my life. I haven’t had an “analog” cigarette in over two years.
And our inillustrious Congress is doing what, exactly?
Trying to suck all the fun, pleasure and joys from our lives.
I can proudly say that both of my Senators (Rubio/nelson) and my Rep. Sandy Adams from Florida support the Traditional Cigar Manufacturing and Small Business Jobs Preservation Act !!
As an avid lover of premium cigars I do enjoy an Acid every now and then. Especially in the tins as a quick smoke at a bar(outdoor of course). My all time favorite is a Cuban MonteChristo #2...followed by many, many others. Mostly all non-Cuban. I just might start shooting if they take them away...
In Calabasas California, you aren’t allowed to smoke IN YOUR OWN FRIGGIN APARTMENT !!!!
I get any cigar I want out of Malaysia....at 1/3rd the cost : )
Sadly, those types of laws are popping up everywhere.
Pretty soon you won’t be able to cook in your own apartment because it also produces smoke...and if you like frying up some burgers or broiling a steak...tough noogies if you’re neighbor is a militant PETA vegan.
Is there a bill on this or is it worded in some FDA paperwork?
I’m not seeing a bill to fight on the link.
That’s been the problem with the EPA lately. They’ve decided they don’t need bills. Just Executive Orders and edicts they can issue and enforce themselves.
Do you have to go to Malaysia to get them?
“I get any cigar I want out of Malaysia....at 1/3rd the cost : )”
Nice work on not supporting your local small family owned businesses. It’s not like small business is the majority of businesses in “our” country. And I say “our” because I am not sure to include you with us.
I could argue with you all night long, but I have a place to run in the morning.
If you are not being sarcastic, you should be ashamed.
Certainly one definition of a prig is someone who stays up nights losing sleep over the thought that someone, somewhere, may be enjoying life.
Increasingly, the entire nation is being run by prigs - and there is qute literally NOTHING they won’t f*** up if they get half a chance.
It makes one grateful to be old and on the way out.
Dennis Prager´s not going to like this at all.
Let’s ban the FDA instead......
I’m sure this would pass easily here in Austin. Our illustrious city council is trying to ban smoking in public now.
Ah, so it’s a preemptive bill...good!
Hope it has wording for ‘Traditional Tobacco Manufacturing’ too.
