Happy Friday, America! If you were looking for something to do this weekend — and you’re the type of person who likes rum and a good cigar — perhaps you should cancel your weekend plans (arguing about politics) and book a short trip to Cuba. Bonus: If you stay until Monday, you can bring home all the stogies and rum that you want.
No, this is not a drill. According to USA Today, President Obama has just announced that bringing your vices home from Cuba is now totally okay.
From USA Today:
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.
There’s always a catch!
