LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - An online cigarette dealer is contesting federal search warrants that it says "decimated" the business by confiscating all inventory, supplies and bank accounts.
Chavez Inc., a Louisville-based tobacco dealer, is asking a federal judge to unseal affidavits backing at least 20 search warrants, which were executed on Dec. 8 on the company's Louisville, Stockton, Calif., and Denver, Colo., offices and on multiple banks where the business held accounts.
Chavez Inc. sold cigarettes outside the state of Kentucky online and through a toll-free number. Moore said the company sold less than 10,000 cigarettes per shipment, meaning a Kentucky tax stamp wasn't required

cigarettes should not only be illegal. someone should come pound your face in for smoking them. it's a testiment to human failure that there are even such things as cigarette factories.
