  • Hi Brian,
    I see they let you back into the states.
    I haven’t met Dan Johnson yet, but I did get a chance to try the John Cotton #1 Mild last weekend at the Pittsburgh Pipe Club meeting. Resurrecting old tobaccos is a great idea. It sounds like quite a competent team in terms of creating the blend, marketing, and the legal aspects. We opened a tin of Drucquers Red Lion last week and found the latakia tobaccos quite muted, so they had quite a challenge in recreating these old tobaccos. December 1st for availability of the new blends, I can’t wait.
    Music – “The Incredible Flautist Movement” was interesting.
    Rant – Fights should be stopped, not filmed. We have changed as a society. Too bad.
    Good show.
    Rant –

  • Great interview Brian. It is still good to see that in this day and age of Antis and overstepping government that good friends of a like mind can get together and create a business. I wish a good journey to you Dan and company. With all the talk about these blends it looks like you are in for a great ride. Wishing The Standard Tobacco Company of Pennsylvania great success.
    The problem with stopping a street fight is that times have changed. They use to be fought with fist, now any weapon can be involved even automatics. If the news channels would not pay for the videos people would not take the time to record them.

  • Brian, In regards to the tobacco laws in the U.S.; this is a link for what is going on.
    Also, I highly recommend all of our brothers of the leaf join the ICPR. it is $35.00 a year or $500 for a lifetime membership that can be broken down to ten payments. This money goes toward the rights of smokers. If everybody wh this concerns would join it would give the lawers on our side the capital they need.

  • Crusader – I looked at the IPCPR website and it says that individuals are NOT eligible for membership.
