If a ban were to be implemented wouldn't you think that Congress would have enabled it first? The FDA doesn't have the authority to implement something by itself. Moreover there's no evidence in the actual article itself that suggests the FDA considering a ban.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.
I'm guessing that's socioeconomic.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.
Menthol cigarettes have kind of a mint flavor to them. It's usually very strong. People who like them really like them, and people who don't like them really don't like them. There's no middle ground of opinion.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.
That's racist. When I was in the army, I smoked. And I found out that if I wanted my supply of cigarettes to last for the duration of a field exercise, Camel cigarettes were the best bet because about half our unit wouldn't be begging "a square" if it wasn't menthol.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.
