Cigarette companies have been brazen with their products for decades, but it seems like Biden’s administration wants to put an end to this. The Biden administration is expected to announce its proposal to ban menthol cigarettes sometime this week. Menthol cigarettes have been among the most popular brands of cigarettes, especially among the African-American community. The companies have actively marketed menthol cigarettes towards Black communities.
The Food and Drug Administration is trying to get rid of menthol cigarettes in the U.S. This is taking us in the right direction because menthol is a great health risk and also hard to quit.
