    My buddy and I have a tradition of getting together to golf a few times a year and we always smoke Djarum Blacks on the course. One pack is far more than we would smoke (combined) in a year. I bet I have 6 of the things each summer. So this doesn't really affect me, but I'm curious about the shenanigans that have recently taken place.

    My question is this: Why in the hell were they outlawed? And now, why the hell are they "legal" again, but as "cigarillos?" And why the hell do I now have to pay $5 for 12 of them when I used to pay $4 for 20?

    Does anyone know the story on this?

    What are the new tobacco laws?

    I think it was something about outlawing flavored stuff that might appeal to kids.

    Are the cigarillos still Djarum Black brand?

    The carton would be much more than I would ever need, and I assume that re-selling them out of my trunk would be a no-no.

    I guess I will just have to find someone that smoke's 'em and buy a pack from them.

    I haven't tried the cigars yet, but I wondered if they had changed...

    The Djarum Splashes were the best. The blacks and cherry are ok. Havent seen em around in a while.
