Save the Cigar Industry, Sign these Petitions Today!

Cigar manufacturers, retailers and the hundreds of thousands of people who work in this industry need your help to save it from FDA regulation that will considerably harm the industry and its jobs.

These regulations also affect the choices of the adult cigar smoker. Here’s how:

- It makes it illegal for free samples to be distributed by manufacturers or retailers.

- All cigars that were not in the market before February 2007, must file an application with the FDA for each cigar size/shape. According to the FDA, an application may cost up to $350,000 to file per cigar! This onerous application requirement means the end of most boutique cigars, special edition cigars, limited batch, and house blends…. Within the next 2 years, you may see half of the cigars in the market go away!

- Prices on Premium Cigars will increase considerably to cover all those regulations costs  

We must fight together this unprecedented regulation. Below are two petitions that only take a couple of minutes to sign. Your opinion counts. .Don't let the FDA have the final say!

A personal typed letter sent via the U.S. Mail to both your U.S. Senators & Member of the House of Representatives who represents you in Washington, D.C. Sent to their Washington, D.C.. office carries more weight than the on-line petition. Sign the petition, and send letter two your three representatives in Washington, D.C.. Trust me those people put a lot of weight in a letter sent from a constituent.
Please do both of these, it only takes a minute.
This is outrageous picking on cigar smokers that have been smocking for many years!!
