Yeah, they're Aussies but, the Almighty FDA has complete authority over ALL tobacco products 'Offered for Sale or Imported to' the U.S. The FDA has deemed Ciggies tobacco products to be 'Adulterated or Misbranded' & therefore are subject to FDA sanctions which include civil money penalties, no-tobacco-sale orders, criminal prosecution, seizure etc. etc. etc. How they got this much power? One would have to travel back to 1938? when a bunch of folks, including children, were poisoned by an imported product. Definitely a noble cause & a needed service IMO. But this is over the line IMO.
