Editor’s Note: This week we added a new sponsor, Defeat Prop 29. For those of you that don’t know, Prop 29 is a ballot measure in California that would raise the taxes on cigars from its current 31.73% to 54.89% of the wholesale prices. Prop 29 goes to vote on June 5, 2012 and you can learn more on Defeat Prop 29’s website or in this article in the Los Angeles Business Journal.
