  5. General Cigar Discussion
    I'm a fan of Villazon cigars, especially Flor de Allones and Punch Gran Puro. Now that the Villazon factory in Cofradia, Honduras was closed last December, where are these cigars being made? Has anyone noticed if quality has suffered? 1. Flor de Allones 1. Punch Gran Puro 3. Ramon Allones...
  6. Tobacco Legislation
    (I hope this doesn't show up twice. If so, I apologize. I tried once before, but it doesn't seem to have worked.) I thought it would be useful to let everyone know the facts about the FDA legislation. The following is directly from the IPCPR on the FDA legislation. As you can see, the nicotine...
  7. Tobacco Legislation
    Since the thread that raised the FDA tobacco regulation bill recently was closed, I thought I'd post some of the factual information. This is straight from the IPCPR about the legislation and provides some facts about what's happening: FDA Legislation: With the House having passed legislation...
  8. Tobacco Legislation
    Mod- I realized after posting that this probably doesn't go in this forum. Can you please change it to the tobacco legislation area. Thank you. It looks like the Senate passed through the bill. Lets hope that the House doesn't pass it through as well. I'd hate to see what it does to pipe...

    FDA approved that meat from cloned cows, pigs and sheep and milk from cows, is safe to eat. http://abcnews.go.com/Health/comments?type=story&id=4134875 Why does this seem like the beginning of a horror movie?

  14. Tobacco Legislation
    Saw this in another forum just now (thefiringline.com). Anyone have any thoughts? A fundamental precept of the Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (FDCA) is that any product regulated by the FDA that remains on the market must be safe and effective for its intended use. That is, the potential for...
  15. General Cigar Discussion
    The US Senate is preparing to move a bill out of committe that would compel the FDA to regulate cigarettes and, by extension, cigars. I say 'compel' because published reports indicate that the FDA does not want to be put in the position of deciding what would make a cigarette 'safe'. The only...
  16. General Cigar Discussion
