Oppose Characterizing Flavors Bill in Washington!

Attention Washington cigar retailers and patrons,

We are writing to alert you regarding an anti-small business and anti-consumer piece of legislation currently being considered by the Washington State Senate. Senate Bill 5239 would give the Secretary of Health arbitrary rule-making power to ban so-called “characterizing flavors” in tobacco products, including some premium cigars.

This bill would severely limit the choices available to adult cigar enthusiasts and threatens the bottom line of Washington small businesses. We urge you to contact your state senators and express your opposition to S.B. 5239. Every voice counts in the fight to protect our industry and the product options available to adult cigar consumers.

We will continue to closely monitor the progress of this bill and provide updates as necessary. In the meantime, we ask for your support in this important matter by sending the pre-written letter below to your legislators.

Thank you for you support!
