Thumbs up Here Come The Legal Cuban Cigars!

This is just a start although within a few years, expect to see your favorite ISOM smokes on the usual websites. There's obvious geopolitical, and crisis averting rationale behind this that I won't go into, although its good news for those who smoke cigars.

US to start talks with Cuba to normalize full diplomatic relations.

Other presidents have tried this. Even if it changed tomorrow. It would take years.

I'm going to move this to Cigar Legislation so that it can run its course with the proper audience, and hopefully we'll avoid a bunch of off topic CC discussion outside the Habanos forum.

Selfishly, I think it's horrible news for US cigar smokers. Quality will go down as they try to crank out more cigars, and prices will go way up.

Unselfishly, this is the best thing that could happen for the Cuban people.

Re: Here Come The Legal Cuban Cigars!

I wonder if the FDA is planning to be so kind as to exempt these allegedly soon-to-be-available cigars from 'regulation'.
It would be just like the bureaucracy to make these legal on one end just as they make them unavailable-due-to-regulation on the other.

You can't stock up. Cuban cigars are illegal here... remember?

Re: Here Come The Legal Cuban Cigars!

"...expect to see your favorite ISOM smokes on the usual websites." @MoreBeer. I like your optimistic view, but taking the other side, also find it interesting this is coming at a time when the world is busily cracking down on tobacco consumption. So by the time it actually occurs, the retail landscape may be a lot different than the way we know it now. BUT, coming over to your side , just having them legally available in the US for the first time in 50+ years could spark so much interest that another cigar mini-boom could occur. T.
