Americans can now bring back $100 worth of Cuban cigars

As part of a historic deal that aims to normalize relations between the U.S. and Cuba — which includes a possible lifting of a U.S. trade embargo, the establishment of embassies, and the easing of a travel ban — comes a perk for American tourists with a taste for the good life: Cuban cigars. From The Hill:

The administration is also authorizing new exports to the country, and quadrupling the amounts American citizens can both import from and send to Cuba. Travelers to Cuba can now bring home $400 work of goods, with a cap of $100 on tobacco and alcohol products. [The Hill]
