FDA Ruling Would Mean Win for Smokers

Amid Food and Drug Administration (FDA) plans for tougher restrictions on the sale of tobacco products, the agency is considering a sort of olive branch to cigar smokers.

In a statement, the agency wrote they are considering “to exclude from the scope of this proposed rule certain cigars that we refer to as premium cigars.” The statement did not detail what the agency deems a ‘premium cigar.’

This is a fabulous move, and would be a wise exemption to make. To lump machine-made “gas station cigars” in with premium hand-mades is like linking a fast food burger with filet mignon: they are simply not the same.
