House Bill Exempts Premium Cigars

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.
