Because of the weed inside 'em... I guess the punishment of bringing them into the country is the same as smuggling weed...

It's due to the Cuban embargo and yes Castro. Anything from Cuba is illegal if it's an import. Very stupid really. Besides Dominican cigars are just as good if not better. I've smoked them both.

It has nothing to do with right or wrong and has EVERYTHING to do political EGOS.

They're illegal to import so that cigar aficionados (read idiots) can make a big deal out of them. Once they're in the country there is no chance of anyone caring.

I've never heard of that. If you mean cannabis, when you say weed, no they dont have any in them, just cuban grown tobacco. Marijuana is illegal in cuba too. I've smoked cubans, and they werent the best cigars I've smoked. You can get a type of cuban cigar in the states, I forget the name of the brand off the top of my head... But cuba sends cigars to portugal, and they resell them to us. See how stupid it is? It has nothing to do with the cigars themselves, its just trade with cuba. Cigar afficiandos will agree, there's better cigars out there, they're just kind of 'the forbidden fruit' here in the US.

I think Don Diegos are better. Definately cheaper by a buttload.  :eyemouth:

why?
because caribbean/western hemisphere commies are bad...
while chines commies & former russian commies are good...
(& korean commies are bad; & vietmanese commies are sorta OK; & afghani commies are bad, but so are former afghani anti-commies; & former east-german & other eastern-bloc commies are mostly good....)
crazy americans...

CUBAN CIGARS ARE ILLEGAL BECAUSE:

Cuba is a communist country.  This means, among other things, that their market is not free and their people dont have much of a choice in the goods that they buy. 

So, Our government, being a capitalist government that supports the free market, decided to embargo Cuba in protest of their communist economic system.  What this means, among other things, is that they are telling Americans what they can and cannot buy. 

makes sense, dont it?  :nut:

The embargo against Cuba has been escalated since the end of the Cold War, meaning that it really has little to do with Communism. It's more about the US desire to control Cuba (it's of strategic importance).

The embargo has been condemned and declared illegal by the UN, with the exception of the US and Israel, but the US pays no heed to international law.

Cuban expats and their desendants would have a fit if the embargo was lifted. Nobody else much cares. So, it stays.
