House Bill Exempts Premium Cigars

Quote:
The U.S. House of Representatives passed a bill last Friday that aspires to curtail youth use of tobacco products with strict new regulations, including banning all flavored tobacco products as well as Internet and catalog sales of all tobacco products. One tobacco segment, however, is exempt from the new rules: premium cigars.

For the first time ever, the House officially recognized that premium cigars are a unique tobacco category as they passed H.R. 2339, the Reversing the Youth Tobacco Epidemic Act, by a vote of 213 to 195, with 22 members abstaining. Rep. Frank Pallone Jr. (D-NJ) first filed the bill last April, and then in November an exemption for premium cigars was added.

There is also language that could ban online sales of cigars....

For all practical purposes if this bill passes I will not be able to order any cigars to be mailed to my house.

It also defines a "premium cigar" as costing $12 or more, which is extremely lazy and biased. A premium cigar is one hand rolled from hand picked, aged tobacco leaves no matter the msrp.

A Punch Rothschild has a MSRP of less than $6. The OLIVA MB3 has a MSRP that is north of $12, I think. But most of the cigars I smoke have a MSRP that is than $12.
