The following is from Corona Cigar Company:
Save thousands of “mom and pop” cigar shops, premium cigar manufacturers and their employees from being regulated out of business by the FDA. Support S.1461 & HR 1639 – The Traditional Cigar Manufacturing & Small Business Jobs Preservation Act.
Omissions & Corrections – Annual Cigarette Unit Sales 500 Billion, Annual Mass Market Large Cigar Unit Sales 5 Billion, Annual Large Premium Cigar Unit Sales 250 Million. Premium cigars represent a tiny fraction of a percent of all tobacco sales.
FDA regulations would also add additional “User Fees” (taxes) to cigars.
