California State Senator and Assembly Member Propose Act of Tobacco Prohibition for The Golden State

UPDATE! Senate Bill 575 has been assigned to the California Senate Committee on Labor and Industrial Relations.

Make no mistake, this is a very real threat to your passion for fine cigars. It not only affects the entire state of California, but sets a horrid precedent for the entire nation.

Senate Bill 575 threatens your freedom to enjoy a cigar at your local retail tobacconist and is a direct threat to the livelihood of professional tobacconists across California — and could spread across the entire nation.

It is time to draw a line in the sand on this type of legislation, and with California being a benchmark state for such legislation, this prohibitionist style of law making needs a direct and passionate response from all in Cigar Nation.

ACTION FOR CALIFORNIA RESIDENTS
1. Please contact your member of the California Assembly and Senate (search by zip code) and tell them to SAY NO to Senate Bill 575.
2. Please sign the CRA Petition.

ACTION FOR NON-CALIFORNIA RESIDENTS
1. Please sign the CRA Petition.

In his own words, Senator DeSaulniers wants to eliminate your freedom and ability to enjoy cigars.
