Why are Cuban Cigars Illegal?
Why are Cuban Cigars Illegal you may ask?

It is illegal to import Cuban Cigars into the United States because of the Cold War!

Back in the late 1950s, the United States limited Cuban imports to the United States in response to Cuba's new government, which seized United States properties in Cuba.

Then, in the early 1960s, at the height of the Cold War, the trade restrictions were further limited, because of Cuba's alliance with the Soviet Union.

Finally, in February 1962, importing Cuban Cigars from Cuba to the United States became completely illegal. Interestingly, we heard rumors that President John F. Kennedy went on a Cuban Cigar-shopping spree to stock up on his favorite Cuban Cigars, before announcing the embargo making Cuban Cigars illegal in the United States.

The restrictions and limitations have been updated over the years, and although the Cold War is long over, Cuban Cigars are still illegal, because of Cuba's Human Rights policies.
