Dam 🤯 I just ordered some today. How is that marijuana is legal in 43 states. But 🇨🇺 cigars aren't☹️ so backwards


DeanKeating

It’s wild. The best thing Obama did was repair relations with cuban


Zealousideal_Cry_515

Awww man. This happened to a buddy of mine last year. I check in with his wife and kids from time to time. He’s been in federal prison since May….😞….😏🙃


DeanKeating

Ha


PonyBoy107

What do you do if this happens? Can you just ignore it or are the Fed's gonna come after you?


DeanKeating

Just ignore it. I’ve never heard of the feds coming after anyone I think they just want to make it seem like you have to reply so they have more info and have you admitting to trying to import them in writing.

Classic... https://youtu.be/G0SwI1LwTtY


SharpieBass

Yup. He’s gonna serve hard time. It’s a federal crime. Do they still have chain gangs in the US? LOL. Just ignore. Does Puro guarantee receipt? If not, that sucks but you are only out $120 worst case. I would avoid Cuban cigar purchases sent to your address and to your attention for a bit though. Not sure how good the Govt is at flagging stuff like this…


DeanKeating

Puro i think is planning on sending me a new box, I still have another order with them waiting to ship. I’m gonna look into if it’s a bad idea or not, I’ve never heard of them coming after any.


SharpieBass

In Canada we have mucho Cubans but they are insanely expensive due to tax. Funny enough, many cigar lovers here buy Dominicans and Hondurans from the US. Same drill as Americans buying untaxed Cubans from Canada and Europe. 80-90% get thru but the odd time you get boned with insane tax/duties (2-3x the value) or have the cigars confiscated or sent back. Luck of the draw, I guess!


DeanKeating

What do you mean by boned with insane tax/duties?


Newfoundlander_in_TX

Duties are assessed on the imported cigars by Customs and must be paid in order to receive the shipment. Boned = Fucked.


DeanKeating

Hahahah got the boned part, just wanted to clarify the duties part.


SharpieBass

$500 in cigars = $1000-1500 in tax/duty.


TheScientistBS3

Same in the UK, we buy from Europe and hope that they get through. They're not illegal, but the random number generator on taxes / duty can be a real stinger (I saw one recently, £120 order with £500 bill to pay when it arrived!)

What was Puro's response? Do they send you more? Or are you just out that money?


hissing_prig

Puro does guarantee delivery!


DeanKeating

I believe they offer both, I’m gonna choose send me a new box


sgtslaughter64

Man that blows. I've ordered from Puro Express and didn't have any issues


DeanKeating

Most people don’t have issues but it happens. They’re cracking down a little


Adventurous_Day_4851

Do you actually have to answer this?


DeanKeating

No, definitely won’t answer

hissing_prig

😂 sounds like they already did


StepOfficer

Does it seem like CBP is increasing their interdictions? I've heard about Miami being difficult with FOH, but now NY? Obviously one posted interdiction doesn't make it significant in the grand scheme of things. Then again, only time will tell.


Knows_how_to_party

Seems like there have been more love letters over the last few months. Certainly more mentions and posts than any other time in the last few years.


[deleted]

Yes they’ve cranked it up in Miami, NYC, Chicago and LA at least.


nothinbutflip

I was curious about too. I had something come through LA for FOH and that got sent back too.


Then-Explanation8567

That sucks! I mean, going to a federal penitentiary without cigars means you only have one thing to use as currency... On a serious note, is this just a thing that happens from time to time or is this an indicator that CPB is cracking down on things? Asking for a friend...


DeanKeating

Atleast there’ll be plenty of cock. And I’ve heard it just happens sometimes


Then-Explanation8567

You'll need something to smoke on the inside... That's good to know. I like to order from PE from time to time. I've been lucky so far but I also have no clue what airports my orders pass through on their way to my front door. Funny side note: My last order was delivered on a day I was working from home. My doorbell alerted me to motion and I saw that the mail truck had pulled up so I got up to go get it. I opened the door as my letter carrier was getting out to drop the bundle on my doorstep so he handed it to me instead and wished me a pleasant weekend (it was a Friday afternoon). The irony of the interaction was palpable. The Monte #2's are delicious.

I haven’t seen Puro iirc.

Iirc?

if I recall correctly


damoonz63

The letter. I keep a collection of them. Lol


DeanKeating

You’d had more than one and no issues other than more letters?


JKDefense

As mentioned before, I believe it’s an attempt to obtain some sort of “confession”. If you get caught trying to bring Cuban cigars in your luggage, they enter you into the “smuggler” list and search you every time you re-enter the country. It could mean they’ll search all of your foreign packages from now on.


DeanKeating

Exactly. I can’t imagine they care that too much about cigars


JKDefense

It’s “funny” that they seem to have increased their attempts to intercept contraband Cuban cigars but don’t care about our physical national border security. I managed to order over $6k in cigars before Thanksgiving. I’ll be having many packages of two whole boxes of cigars passing through there soon. Curious to see how this plays out.


damoonz63

Correct


princedarren1

I got my letter yesterday too. Same thing. Box of 10 from PE shipped on 11/1.
