IECD 2018

Post by Jester » Mon Mar 05, 2018 8:50 am

May 31st 2018 will be the 1st International Enjoy a Cigar Day.

Cigar Rights of America and Cigar Rights of Europe have teamed up to create awareness of the political plunder in the tobacco industry.
On this day, both consumer organizations want to draw attention to the following:

*that the cigar is a luxury product, enjoyed by discerning adults as an indulgence, not a habit;
*that each premium cigar is a natural product;
*that the enjoyment of cigars can contribute to one’s personal wellbeing by offering moments of solace, contemplation and fellowship;
*that premium cigars, versus other tobacco products such as cigarettes, should not be treated the same way by law;
*that patrons of cigars, and producers and sellers of cigars contribute to their communities, support charities, and believe in the right to personal freedom;
*that thousands of jobs are maintained in agriculture, industry, and commerce (above all in countries that need support);
*that cigar patrons believe they should have the option to enjoy a cigar where they are welcome. Private property owners, be it retail tobacconists or establishments in the hospitality sector, should have the liberty to set their own rules for the enjoyment of cigars, not governmental bodies that have alternative agendas;
*that cigar culture should be assigned world heritage status.

I'm not a big cigar guy but, remind me about this and I'll nab up a stick for the occasion.

I can get behind this.

I might be able to sneak a cigar purchase in.
Farts are either proof that God is a man or a sign of a fallen world.
