Big Government Strikes Again

Thanks to crushing new FDA regulations on the cigar industry, one generations-old factory may be forced to shut its doors for good. The owners of Tabanero Cigars in Tampa, Florida say they’re already feeling the pinch.

“We are paying the FDA to put us out of business,” said Yanko Macedo.

One of the new proposed regulations is a hefty application fee for each hand-rolled cigar type. With 34 types and a fee of $50,000 a pop, Macedo says his business is as good as bankrupt.
