    Got an email from Xikar informing us that the FDA is trying to regulate cigars. Bob might be able to shed some light on this as it effects the vape industry. Thought I'd pass this on to you guys.

    Yep. And not only cigars but also vape gear which is absurd.

    Big Tobacco strikes again. I'm surprised Big Beer hasen't pushed a similar agenda vs all these small breweries popping up.

    and actually they are not trying to... The bill passed. Starting in Augest of this year there are no new products allowed on the market (vape gear and cigars). Then in the next two years each product has to be approved by the FDA. The process to get items approved is estimated at about 1 million per item. Its quite ridiculous!
