Save the Cigars

The Food & Drug Administration (FDA) will soon make a decision as to what constitutes a “premium cigar.” FDA officials have suggested these cigars may be exempt from serious government regulation.

As it stands now, the FDA’s interpretation of a premium cigar is one that is made my hand, contains 100% tobacco leaves, and is free from all added flavorings. The trouble is, they also think these cigars should be more than $10 a stick.

Cigar enthusiasts know that many quality smokes are under $10. Some of us actually gravitate toward these sticks, with the knowledge that buying a box (usually 20 or more cigars) doesn’t have to break the bank.

There is still time left to ask the FDA to reconsider this high price requirement for premium cigars.
