Cigar Rights of America (CRA) is a smokers rights group founded in early 2008 by a consortium of cigar manufacturers and premium cigar retailers to defend the cigar industry by fighting public health policies that impact smoking, like increased tobacco taxes, and smoking restrictions.[1]

Dues are $30/year. To launch the group, representatives of its founding manufacturers will be visiting various cities across the U.S. in the summer of 2008 on a CRA "Freedom Tour."[2]
