Plans to regulate cigars and other tobacco products the same as cigarettes might threaten one of the nation’s top-selling cigar brands. Black and Mild is produced by the Richmond-based Altria Group. The Food and Drug Administration has proposed that cigar makers remove descriptions such as “light,” ”mild,” ”medium” or “low” from their products.
