Q. Why can't I add certain in-stock products to my shopping cart?
A. The Pact Act, a Federal Law, prohibits online retailers from shipping roll-your-own and smokeless tobacco into states until they register with those states. We believe this imposes on our Treaty Rights, but are trying to comply since it is a Federal Law. Once we are registered with a state, we are only allowed to ship up to 10 pounds of smokeless or roll-your-own tobacco in a transaction (due to the Federal law). Or it maybe a legal issue with your state and the type of tobacco product(s). If you have any questions please contact customer service.

Q. Do my cigars have mold on them?
A. If the cigar has a white/yellowish color on it, then the cigar has bloom not mold. Bloom occurs because of the natural aging process of cigars.The cigar received too much humidity at one point in its life and the bloom is the result. It is not necessarily a bad thing to have bloom on a cigar. Some smokers prefer the bloom, believing it to give the cigar a richer taste. Mold is considered bluish gray fuzz.
