Stands to Save the Cigar Industry from FDA Regulation

Leading online cigar distributor urges cigar enthusiasts to petition against government control of cigar sales, a leading online distributor of premium cigars from around the world, is asking customers and cigar enthusiasts to take a stand against the FDA regulation of the cigar industry. H.R. 1639 / S. 1461, known as the “Traditional Cigar Manufacturing and Small Business Jobs Preservation Act,” works to exempt premium cigars from government regulation.

If the FDA was to regulate the sale of premium cigars the following drastic restrictions could be imposed:

  • Ban on mail order cigar sales
  • Ban on walk-in humidors
  • Ban on cigar events where free cigars would be available to legal-age adults
  • Limits on special release and small-batch cigars due to mandates that cigar blends be submitted to the FDA for pre-approval
  • Limits on nicotine levels in cigars to near zero, severely impacting the flavor of cigars
  • New “user fees” [taxes] on cigars to finance regulations
  • Ban on all cigar merchandise

Cigar Rights of America teamed up with legislators to come up with the Traditional Cigar Manufacturing and Small Business Jobs Preservation Act. urges people to visit the Cigar Rights of America website in order to sign the petition against this FDA regulation of the cigar industry. The proposed regulations could have a dramatic impact on the cigar industry, negatively affecting thousands of jobs both in the United States and abroad. In order to prevent the FDA from adding cigars to its list of regulated items, the act must garner the support of 20 U.S. Senators and 150 Representatives.
