PCA Secures Critical Victories in Maryland!

After an intense lobbying effort by PCA’s lobbying team and our Maryland members, we are pleased to report that premium cigars and pipe tobacco were exempted from the drastic tax increase to 70% on other tobacco products. Premium cigars will remain at 15% and pipe tobacco at 30%. Additionally, the tobacco sales ban legislation disguised as a flavor ban, presuming all products to be flavored if they have ever been described as having a distinguishable taste or aroma, did not pass this session.

PCA would like to thank our members who activated and spent time at the Capitol to help secure this victory.
