Tired of having to deal with high tobacco taxes and all sorts of other discriminatory acts against cigar enthusiasts? Think itâ€™s time to do something about it yourself? You might want to join the organization Cigar Rights of America (CRA). So what are they all about?
Here is their mission statement:
Cigar Rights of America (CRA) was founded on the principle of fighting for the freedom to enjoy cigars.
CRA is a consumer-based, non-profit public advocacy organization that works at the local, state, and federal level of government to protect the freedoms of cigar enthusiasts.
Together, with our constituency of nationwide members, we focus our fight for freedom in two main areas:
â€¢ Oppose restrictive smoking bans
