President Obama Lifts 50 Year Ban On Cuban Rum And Cigars

Headed to Cuba soon?

President Obama has lifted the restrictions on Cuban rum and cigars after a 50 year ban. According to USA Today, you now can bring home all the Cuban rum and cigars you want when traveling to the country.

The Obama administration announced Friday a new round of executive actions designed to increase trade and travel with the communist island. And this is the one many Americans have been waiting for — no more restrictions on the island’s famed rum and cigars.

Under the new rules, which go into effect Monday, travelers can purchase unlimited quantities of Cuban rum and cigars in any country where they are sold so long as they are for personal consumption. Sorry American couch potatoes: You can’t order Cuban rum and cigars online and have them shipped to your home.
