The Premium Cigar Association (PCA) strongly opposes Pennsylvania’s HB 1657. This legislation seeks to prohibit smoking in enclosed public places and places of employment, private clubs, enclosed residential facilities, and certain outdoor public places and places of employment.

This legislation would also allow local governments to enact stricter regulations then the state government will impose. This will create a patchwork of smoking regulations which will create an uneven playing field for tobacconists across the state and ultimately hurt small businesses and patrons of premium cigars.

This legislation would ban smoking in cigar shops, cigar lounges, private clubs, and virtually anywhere else where cigars are currently enjoyed. Additionally, it would make it difficult for cigar shops and lounges to continue operating, as they would be forced to prohibit smoking on their premises.

The House Health Committee is holding a hearing on the bill on Wednesday, November 15, 2023, and may vote to ban indoor smoking. We need you to reach out to Pennsylvania’s representatives to oppose HB 1657 before the meeting. Click the link below to submit your comment today.

Pennsylvania is home to many great tobacconists and cigar bars such as Holts, Ashton Cigar Bar, several Cigars International superstores, Summit Cigar Lounge & Bar, Leaf Cigar Bar, Union Cigar Club, Blend Bar with Davidoff and many more.
