Yesterday, we looked at all of the crazy things that US Customs and Border Protection seized in Florida over the summer. There was everything from Humvees to Super Bowl rings to “cocaine vaginal inserts.” Over 4,100 items were seized over a three month period. But Gizmodo also got the lists for other states. Like Utah. Want to see their list of seized items?


Yep, that’s it.

From May 25, 2016 to August 25, 2016 the folks at US Customs seized precisely one thing in Utah: Montecristo cigars. The cigars are Cuban, so they’re still forbidden from being imported into the United States at the moment, despite the slow normalization of relations between the countries.


And here you thought the Cold War was over.
