Obama Lifts Restrictions on Cuban Cigars, Rum

It has happened, folks. Stock up now, because it may be a while before Cubans are the same again. Although our mail ordering is still outlawed.

I believe the loosening so far is for people returning from trips to Cuba

well maybe BBC was right, this from CBS

Correction: An earlier version of this story said that the new changes would allow Americans to bring the Cuban-made cigars and liquor back to the U.S. from Europe, but that's not the case. Americans would only be able to legally buy and consume those products in those countries.

Interesting. Lots of misinformation out there right now. We'll see what happens when the dust settles.
