On December 17, 2014, diplomatic relations between the United States and Cuba were reestablished. However, the trade embargo still remains in effect, so Cuban cigars will not be sold in the U.S. anytime soon. But guess what, there is a new provision for those who travel to Cuba. It will be legal to return to the U.S. with up to $100 worth of Cuban cigars. Yes, this means that Cuban cigars are now legal in the United States!
