Cigar Review staff noticed an article on the Colorado Springs Gazette Website that implies that three bar owners (regular drinking establishment bars) tried to claim they should be exempt from the no smoking law as if they were cigar bars.

They lost the case and were fined a few hundred dollars each. As we started reading the article our first inclination was to take the side of the bar owners. Then we got to the part that said the patrons were smoking cigarettes. Reading further the article says the bar owners defense was that their cigarettes sales - "totaling more than 5 percent of his overall sales - and should have been exempted from Colorado's Clean Air Act under the 'cigar bar' exemption."  WHAT!?! Sorry guys. You got what you deserved. You tried to pull a scam and worse yet, fueled the uneducated, narrow-minded, general public's view that cigars and cigarettes should all be lumped together as the same thing.

Watch for a future article here about the huge differences between cigars and cigarettes.

In the meantime, check out the story and tell us what you think in our forums.
