We Are What We Are


You know, it does’t matter how many smoking bans, amended smoking age increase requirements, or the unprovoked tobacco price increases, you name it we are enduring it. It still boggles my brain how an industry that has lasted for several generations is still growing despite FDA and local municipalities outrageous ordanances. I consistently read articles online, back to back, this stupid city bans smoking in these parks, then the next article is a new release from brand "x". I read that the FDA is choosing option 1 to ban all tobacco from all the world because of the children; the same children the FDA Studies confirmed are not being harmed. Then right next to that is an article of the Big Smoke in Las Vegas, Davidoff Smoking Cruises, private smoking events at local tobacco shops, and people all around the world doing YouTube Cigar reviews. It's Insane!

We as a people pretty much ignore the current situation and continue to do what we want, and how we want it. You ban us from smoking in this park, we'll go to that park. You ban us from smoking in outside our houses, we'll go into our garages. You ban us from smoking in restaurants, we'll hold bonfires at each other's homes. My point is we can’t back down, we won’t back down, and no matter how many warning labels we put on boxes or embargo restrictions we will prevail. We will endure our freedoms to enjoy a premium hand rolled cigar.
