Jaden Smith First of His Name: So the government defines premium cigars as $10 or more. Joey five-buck cigar over there can't call his cigars premium anymore, so he jacks up the price to keep the label? Is that what's going on? Sounds like the cigar companies are the assholes here.

And if this is what's going on I care even less that I originally thought I did.

What the article doesn't mention is that this whole FDA interest in cigars is nothing new. What IS new is the increasingly popular vape craze and they are using THAT, saying E cigarettes and hookahs are being targeted at young people (look at all the flavors!) to drive this regulation. They've just included cigars because they've always wanted to regulate them as well and now they can bundle them into the same law.

This is just my personal opinion, but as an adult who enjoys premium cigars, I urge the FDA to remove the $10 price definition, and any other price requirements from the definition of premium cigars. Premium cigars should be defined only by their construction and composition, and not by their price. Cigars priced $10 and above currently represent a very small fraction of the premium cigar industry and this arbitrary number would result in serious damages to an industry and a hobby that's very important to me and millions of other Americans. If regulation of this 1,000-year-plus pastime is absolutely necessary, I ask only for fair and rational requirements. A $10 minimum price point is neither fair nor rational. Thank you for your consideration of my concerns.
