    John Salley against FDA Regulating Cigars

    “Cigars are not a habit. They are a lifestyle.”

    A message from John Salley:

    "For the life of me, I can’t figure out why the government would want to mess with the premium cigar business. From the producers of great cigars, to those that sell them; to those of us that just want to slow down life with a great cigar. There’s no reason for it."

    John Salley became a 15-year veteran of the NBA, and the first player to win four championships, with three different teams – the Detroit Pistons, Chicago Bulls, and Los Angeles Lakers.
    Now, his career has taken him to television, film, entrepreneurship, and philanthropy – all while sharing your passion for a great cigar.

    This is from CRA. I can't post the link as I don't have enough posts on Puff to post links. Just go to Cigar Rights of America and look for the link for John Salley

    What makes this even better is that the guy is a vegan and a wellness advocate! Not what the FDA wants to stereotype cigar smokers as.

    Good to know, but just another example of federal over reach - given what he pays in taxes is think he'd be familiar.

    HAHAAAAAA! I knew I loved him from the Lakers days. And bless him for saying this. I'm a musician from Hollywood. It's hard to find work around here if you're willing/able to THINK like that. Salley... I salute you!

    My son was in Vegas a couple of.years ago with friends and he went in buy a cigar and John Salley was in there buying an Opus. I appreciate his speaking out.

    So what y'all are saying is that he lives in Vegas therefore he's a Vegan?

    But in answer to the rhetorical question - because they can make money taxing it.
