Mail Order Cigar Industry: Keeping Cigars Away from Minors
The industry has every interest, and is fully committed, to keeping cigars out of the hands of minors.

There’s an old saying that a lie can travel halfway around the world before the truth can get its shoes on. As president of the Cigar Association of America, I’m used to hearing a full range of falsehoods about our industry. One of the worst of these is the notion that the cigar industry isn’t serious about restricting our products to adults.
It’s a ridiculous accusation. The cigar industry is made up of mothers, fathers, neighbors, and good citizens who don’t want kids smoking any more than the next guy. And our companies are acting with consistent responsibility.
