There is a senate bill going through the California legislature that would increase the sales tax on tobacco, cigars included. They are slowly making cigars impossible to smoke with incremental taxes and so-forth. If you could write your state senator and tell them to oppose the tax increase, all the better.
The Cigar Rights of America is sponsoring this campaign.
The web page for the sample letter is on Cigar Rights of America. I can't post the link because I don't have enough messages here to get that privilege. Look for California Senate Bill 768 on CRA.
Thank you for you help, and spread the word.
