The regulations have been growing in number for the past few years, and the FDA admits that it will cost jobs. Do they care? Not really.
Small, high-quality cigars made in the United States may be a thing of the past unless something changes quickly.
The Federal Drug Administration is regulating an industry that it seems to have very little awareness of. The research into a small, craft industry doesn’t seem to have been completed before the regulations started piling up.
On Tucker Carlson’s show, Rocky Patel, premium cigar maker, explains a bit about the high-end cigar industry and that cigar smoking isn’t enjoyed in the same way as other tobacco products.
An FDA report says smoking two cigars a day will have minimal impact on your health. But zombie regulations from the Obama era could kill America's impressive cigar industry. This wasn't something anyone voted for. These are harmful regulations dumped on us by an exiting president.

The FDA took its first steps last week to possibly lower the amount of nicotine in cigarettes. On Tuesday, it started asking for more input on how menthol and other flavorings make cigarettes, cigars and other tobacco products more addictive and dangerous and, if so, what it should do about that.
“FDA may consider restrictions on the sale and distribution of flavored tobacco products,” the agency said in a notice for a proposed new rule.
The agency’s commissioner, Dr. Scott Gottlieb, said the main goal is to protect children.
Of course that’s why they’re doing it — it’s for the children.
“For years we have recognized that flavors in these products appeal to kids and promote youth initiation. The data backs this up, and as a result, Congress prohibited the use of most characterizing flavors in cigarettes,” Gottlieb said in a statement.
“The thought of any child starting down a path of a lifelong addiction to tobacco, which could ultimately lead to their death, is unacceptable. We need to take every effort to prevent kids from getting hooked on nicotine.”

But we’re legalizing marijuana?
Are we also doing that ‘for the children’?
Patel says that this is ‘de facto prohibition’ — and it certainly seems that way.
Thanks again, Obama.
