This is a disaster for cigar retailers who ship to the USA. 100,000 sticks is a lot of money that they will have to replace for their customers. Say an average of $7 per stick, that’s $700,000 in losses. Retailers can’t possibly absorb those type of losses for very long and stay in business.

I suspect that they will have to start charging insurance premiums against Customs seizures if this continues.
