2 thoughts on “Proposed Ban on Menthol Cigarettes Will Hurt People of Color

  1. The author is not being truthful about the ordinance. The ordinance is focused on retailers, not people. It would not be illegal to have or possess a menthol cigarette.

    Ending the sale of menthol cigarettes will immediately save african american lives. For decades, the tobacco industry has targeted menthols at African Americans because menthols make it easier to start and harder to quit smoking. So its no surprise that African American bear worst burdens of smoking. We smoke less, but die more thanks to menthols. Who advocates for that??

    I choose to protect the community, not hand it over to the tobacco industry.
