Help Keep Cigars in The Cigar City

In 2009, Congress enacted the Tobacco Control Act, which gave the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) the authority to regulate cigarettes and smokeless tobacco products. In 2016, the FDA issued the “Deeming Rule,” which expanded the agency’s regulatory authority to include cigars, pipes, and all other tobacco products. In doing so, the FDA took the same strict, onerous, and costly regulatory regime designed for “Big Tobacco” and the cigarette industry and applied it to premium cigars.


Because premium cigars are artisan, handcrafted products, the FDA’s one-size-fits-all approach seriously threatens the J.C. Newman’s Tampa cigar factory and the historic American premium cigar industry. The FDA is seeking public comment about whether premium cigars should be exempt from FDA regulation.

Help save Tampa’s last operating cigar factory and protect the premium cigar industry by writing to FDA Commissioner Gottlieb.

Listening To Our Customers

There were a lot of choices in Ybor City when I came to Cigar stores while on my trip. Nestled right on the corner across from the center of the action in Ybor, it was not real busy on a Tuesday so a perfect time to go in and chat. They only sell their hand rolled cigars but have a great variety from mild to strong cigars. So I sat down and a friendly man greeted me and we started talking. Steve works there and was a plethora of information! So I lit up an amazing Connecticut Toro and he started giving me a great history lesson on Ybor City. The experience at Tabanero was not only amazing because of the great cigars, but because of the great staff! Stay to smoke, have a wonderful Cuban coffee and take several cigars home for later!
