The FDA Is Poised To Ban Menthol And Flavored Cigarettes

The FDA announced today that they will begin the process of banning menthol tobacco cigarettes and flavored cigars

According to NBC News:

"With these actions, the FDA will help significantly reduce youth initiation, increase the chances of smoking cessation among current smokers, and address health disparities experienced by communities of color, low-income populations, and LGBTQ+ individuals, all of whom are far more likely to use these tobacco products," acting FDA Commissioner Dr. Janet Woodcock said in a statement.
The regulatory agency stopped short, however, of including menthol-flavored electronic cigarettes.
