WHOA to Australian BOTLS!

Hello Gents,
I read recently that the Australian Government wants to pass a law that all cigars are to be packaged in plain boxes with only the brand and line names. The bands on the cigars themselves have to be removed and replaced with brown bands. Any tubed cigars have to be re-tubed in a generic green tube. So essentially ISOMs will be illegal. Check it out for yourself: http://www.theaustralian.com.au/national-affairs/cuba-fumes-over-tobacco-packaging-laws/story-fn59niix-1226194053123

    I know right! Cigars are Uber expensive over here due to insane tax and nanny govt legislation. Most smokes are nearly 20 bucks (even for a Padron 3000) a stick!

    Lucky enough to get most my stuff overseas cos I travel a lot. Grrrrr!
