I went from the UK to Dublin on Sept 21st, met up with Ryan and a few other FOH characters for an enjoyable evening of cigar smoking and chat.  I continued on my way to Canada on Sept 24th, arrived at 5:00 pm, traveling light with mainly my laptop and two weeks supply of my favorite cigars in travelling humidor.  I woke up the next day in the airport hotel without remembering anything after the arrival, with my backpack emptied of the cigars and laptop.  I eventually figured out what had happened.   After arriving I think I stopped in an airport cafe to get my bearings and ordered a coffee.  (I didn't drink any alcohol)  I figure that someone spiked my drink with Rohypnol,  the date rape drug!   I have been feeling rough for a few days,  missing my cigars much more than the laptop,  but it could have been worse.  At least I didn't lose my virginity! :) I didn't lose my passport or wallet because they were in my front pants pockets fortunately.  Now I would like to meet up with some Toronto cigar smokers.   I heard that there is a regular group that meets up.   If anyone knows about that group please pass on the information.

Could have been a drug for sure, but also strongly suggest that you see a doctor to rule out that there is nothing wrong with your health, take some tests perhaps.

I would also report the incident to the authorities, good chances that CCTV picked up what happened to you.

Hope the rest of the trip is better.

And just where do you think this “regular group that meets up” gets their cigars…. 🤔 

I hear that the Native Reservations here in Canada are free from duties and taxes,  and that they legally sell online... today I will need to try to replenish :)

...of course some of them may be wealthy enough to pay the exorbitant prices in the cigar stores,  or elsewhere

Have you taken an inventory of all your internal organs? 

I hear in places like Bolivia, and India that's what they are after,  how horrible!

That’s horrible man, but glad you’re alright. What can we do to help? 

Thanks for the question... Actually if you live in Toronto and have some spare Partagas D4 or Montecristo 1, or Montecristo 2, or Trinidad Fundadores etc. and are feeling particularly generous I would be delighted to meet up :) I will be trying to replenish as much as I can as soon as I can

They don't pay provincial taxes or charge sales tax but they still have to pay Canadian duties. So their prices are just under 2x online duty free prices whereas Canadian brick and mortar is 3x.

Me too!  I just googled the issue and many thousands of people around the world are being ripped off / mugged in the same way.
