Happy Friday Best Cigar Prices’ fans! We hope you have an awesome Memorial Day weekend! With all of this talk about

cigar laws

FDA regulation of the cigar industry and higher taxes on premium cigars, we thought we would shed light on some of the most absurd cigar laws from around the world (and surprisingly yes, these are actual laws):

  • In New Orleans, Louisiana, it is against the law for anyone participating in a carnival or parade to smoke. Need we mention that nearly everything is legal in New Orleans? Also, all parade floats must have a “No Smoking” sign clearly visibly to all those bead-hungry Mardi Gras-goers.
  • In Zion, Illinois, it is illegal to give a lighted cigar to any dog, cat, or other domesticated animal kept as a pet. Sorry Fido.
  • In New Jersey zoos, it is against the law to give cigars, cigarettes, or whiskey to any of the animals. It is also illegal to force a monkey to smoke a cigarette in South Bend, Indiana.
  • In Australia, children are prohibited from purchasing tobacco products. That sounds reasonable enough, right? Well, as long as they have an adult buy it for them, they are legally allowed to smoke cigars and cigarettes.
  • In Marceline, Missouri, minors are able to purchase tobacco products but not lighters. I bet this stops them from smoking!
  • In Newport, Rhode Island, feel free to enjoy your tobacco pipe all day long. Until sunset that is. As soon as the sun goes down smoking a pipe is against the law.

Has anyone heard of any other bizarre cigar laws?
