Protect the Future of Premium Cigars

Thank you to everyone who has already made this donation drive one of the most successful! This message is being sent again to those who haven’t yet had a chance to join CRA’s dedicated supporters in contributing to the fight against the FDA’s appeal. Please consider donating today!

Thursday, May 23rd, marked a critical juncture in the ongoing effort to safeguard the premium cigar industry. The United States Food & Drug Administration (FDA) has submitted its response brief in their ongoing appeal of last year’s decision to exempt premium cigars from FDA regulation.

This battle began with a significant victory for premium cigars on August 9, 2023, when Judge Amit Mehta ruled in favour of the CRA-led lawsuit, striking down all FDA regulations on premium cigars. This decision was a monumental win for the industry, recognizing the unique nature of premium cigars and the need to protect them from overreaching regulations.

However, the fight is far from over. The FDA has made it clear that their intention is to challenge Judge Mehta’s ruling to the Supreme Court. The FDA’s filing is the last step in this high-stakes appeals process before oral arguments begin later this year. While there is confidence in the strength of Judge Mehta’s ruling, it is essential to continue this fight against the FDA and Congress while also defending the industry in court. Continued support is crucial to protect the enjoyment of premium cigars.

This case represents a significant victory but is not the end. The decision, if upheld, will offer protection for some time, but it does not prevent the FDA from re-regulating in the future. The FDA has made it clear that they will attempt this in the coming years.
