People often ask me where the name 262 comes from. Many people think it’s my area code, my golf score, or the number of turtlenecks that I have in

my closet. It actually stands for February of 1962. That’s when JFK signed the Cuban Trade Embargo. It’s not the fact that he signed it, but it’s how he went about doing it. He had his press secretary round up all the Cuban H. Upmann Petit Coronas he could find, and then he put pen to paper. He got all of his before anybody else could get theirs. Fast forward 50 years, and you’ll see that the government is living above the rules and regulations they enforce and impose upon us.

Smoke Em if You Got Em – It’s Our Right

As an American, I am passionate about my right to smoke a cigar (a perfectly legal product). I can make an informed decision on whether or not I want to smoke. Colorado has legalized marijuana for personal use. Would you believe me if I told you that it is taxed less than cigars? It’s true. What if I told you that you can’t smoke inside a cigar shop in Louisville, KY? Kentucky’s number one legal cash crop is tobacco. Interesting, huh?

I would encourage you all to get involved and stand up for your right to smoke a cigar before it’s taken away. We have an endless supply of information in this day and age of technology, so there’s no reason to sit there and watch our rights diminish in front of our eyes. Here are a couple of quick links to see what we’re up against.
