A ban in the U.S., or even new regulation, isn't a slam dunk, though. One thing that is? More studies. One of them will look at whether there's a physiological property to menthol that makes it more addictive or alluring to certain ethnic groups.
People not only start smoking menthols earlier in life; menthol smokers also light up earlier in the morning, wake up to smoke more at night, have lower rates of quitting smoking and higher rates of relapsing if they do quit.
Could someone explain to me what menthol cigarettes are compared to normal ones? I see them advertised in Popular Mechanics (almost all the ads are cigarettes) all the time but I have no idea what it means. I have no idea if they exist here since advertising is banned.
Oh, geez. You've already got smokers pushed outside and generally ostracized. Leave well enough along and let people have their menthols if that's what they want.
