There is an organization called the Cigar Rights of America (CRA) http://www.cigarrights.org/. I am not sure how many of you have heard of them, but right now they are just supporting cigars.

PipesMagazine.com is trying to get all pipe smokers to lobby them to include pipes and pipe tobacco in their efforts in the tobacco wars. I encourage all pipe smokers to write and/or e-mail (info@cigarrights.org) them to lobby for them to include pipers.

If they were a unified organization of cigars and pipes would you join them?
I would, and I also e-mailed them to add pipes and pipe tobacco to their efforts. This is what we need, an organization to stand up for us smokers.

I did send them an e-mail asking them to include pipe tobacco in their efforts and they pretty much said no.

Maybe if we keep lobbying them to do it they will. I will not probably not join them until they do.

Too bad - I would. Maybe they don't understand the whole 'baccy usage' thing - or maybe Pipe smoking is in a different class of it's own. In our province I'm noticing a little bounce back from cigs, cigars and any pipe shops always tell me their doing well.
