In a nutshell – We have all seen the cigar wraps at gas stations also known as ‘blunts’. Now most people acknowledge this form of cigar wrap as being used with smoking marijuana and I don’t think that any cigar smokers really have an issue with […]

If your going to start something off, start it right! I must say, I am a little bias with this stick, as it is my all time favorite.

So, as I’m sure that I am just like all you other CRA memebers, its about time! This sampler is brought to us from an organization call Cigar Rights of America, or CRA for short.

Their main goal is to help assist the Tobacco Industry by lobbying and helping to reduce the taxes imposed upon the Tobacco […]
