    Asking for sources for illegal cigars is not good. Do some looking yourself if you want but 95% of the people that order online CCs will not give you their source. There are a lot of fakes and gray market dealers out there as well. You are treading into water that is very murky and off limits.

    Maybe after you've been here awhile, maybe someone will feel comfortable enough to talk to you about it.

    The official word from the US Treasury Dept, last updated in 2004.

    CUBAN CIGAR UPDATE
    Recent changes to the Cuban Assets Control Regulations, 31
    C.F.R. Part 515 (the “Regulations”), administered and
    enforced by the Office of Foreign Assets Control (“OFAC”),
    have prompted OFAC to revise the Cuban Cigar Update
    previously issued on June 19, 1998. This notice provides
    important information to the public on Cuban-origin tobacco
    products.
    Importation of Cuban-Origin Cigars Into the United States
    There is now an across the board ban on the importation
    into the United States of Cuban-origin cigars and other
    Cuban-origin tobacco products, as well as most other
    products of Cuban origin. This prohibition extends to such
    products acquired in Cuba, irrespective of whether a
    traveler is licensed by OFAC to engage in Cuba travelrelated
    transactions, and to such products acquired in
    third countries by any U.S. traveler, including purchases
    at duty free shops. Importation of these Cuban goods is
    prohibited whether the goods are purchased directly by the
    importer or given to the importer as a gift. Similarly,
    the import ban extends to Cuban-origin tobacco products
    offered for sale over the Internet or through the catalog
    mail purchases. Prior to August 1, 2004, persons returning
    to the United States who were licensed under the
    Regulations to engage in Cuba travel-related transactions
    were authorized by general license to import up to $100
    worth of Cuban merchandise as accompanied baggage. Cuban
    tobacco and alcohol products were included in that general
    license. That general license was removed from the
    Regulations.
    Transactions Involving Cuban-Origin Goods in Third
    Countries
    The question is often asked whether United States citizens
    or permanent resident aliens of the United States may
    legally purchase Cuban origin goods, including tobacco and
    alcohol products, in a third country for personal use
    outside the United States. The answer is no. The
    Regulations prohibit persons subject to the jurisdiction of
    the United States from purchasing, transporting, importing,
    or otherwise dealing in or engaging in any transactions
    with respect to any merchandise outside the United States
    if such merchandise (1) is of Cuban origin; or (2) is or
    2 has been located in or transported from or through Cuba; or
    (3) is made or derived in whole or in part of any article
    which is the growth, produce or manufacture of Cuba. Thus,
    in the case of cigars, the prohibition extends to cigars
    manufactured in Cuba and sold in a third country and to
    cigars manufactured in a third country from tobacco grown
    in Cuba.
    Cigars Produced from Cuban Tobacco Seed OFAC does not
    consider cigars produced from tobacco grown and harvested
    in a third country from Cuban seeds to constitute a growth
    or product of Cuba. Therefore, the Regulations do not
    prevent transactions or dealing in those products by
    persons subject to the jurisdiction of the United States,
    as long as there is no interest of Cuba or a Cuban
    national, direct or indirect, in the sale of such cigars.
    Criminal penalties for violation of the Regulations range
    up to $1,000,000 in fines for corporations, $250,000 for
    individuals and up to 10 years in prison. Civil penalties
    of up to $65,000 per violation may be imposed by OFAC.
    Suspected embargo violations may be reported telephonically
    to OFAC's Enforcement Division at (202)622-2430 or via
    facsimile at 202 622-1657.

    Remember, laws only apply to the poor and honest. Pretty sure the politicians don't qualify on either count.

    LOL! I can't disagree with you on that one... I'd love to think that the majority of them want to do the right thing, but there's just too much political pressure... it's sad really....
