Cigar Industry Says Biden Attack Will Cost Jobs, Save Not One Kid

  • Cigar Association of America President David M. Ozgo is warning government officials to be careful about what they wish for in seeking to impose a national ban on flavored cigars.
  • “The economic impact is one thing, but just as important is the fact that what you’re doing is taking away an adult’s right to choose,” Ozgo told The Center Square.
  • “It’s already illegal for a person under 21 to purchase any tobacco,” he said, adding that the government’s own data shows that less than 1% of youth actually consume flavored cigars.
