The minty past and cloudy future of menthol ci******es : Code Switch In the U.S., flavored ci******es have been banned since 2009, with one glaring exception: menthols. That exception was supposed to go away in 2023, but the Biden administration quietly delayed the ban on menthols. Why? Well, an estimated 85 percent of Black smokers smoke menthols — and some (poten...

A top official fears Biden might let politics interfere with public health 02/19/2024

A top Biden administration health official is urging allies outside the government to lobby the White House to ban menthol ci******es nationwide, fearing that President Joe Biden may abandon the proposal to avoid backlash from Black voters.

Robert Califf, the commissioner of the Food and Drug Administration, has privately asked friends and public health experts to press their White House contacts over the status of the long delayed policy, two people familiar with the outreach told POLITICO. He has voiced concerns that White House support for the ban is waning amid warnings that outlawing a product popular with Black smokers could dent enthusiasm for Biden’s reelection in the minority communities that are core to the president’s base.

A review of smoke-free laws in the 100 largest U.S. cities found that 69 of the 73 cities that prohibit cigarette smoking in bars had exemptions for ho**ah use.

Removing loopholes for ho**ah establishments in smokefree laws can reduce exposure to secondhand smoke and help keep ho**ah out of the hands of kids.

States and localities, where allowed, have apparent authority to restrict the sale of flavored to***co products (or any to***co product) to reduce to***co use and its harm to its citizens. Several localities, including San Francisco and Minneapolis, have passed restrictions on the sale of flavored to***co products that affect ho**ah to***co.

Ho**ah is increasingly becoming popular amongst people belonging to different walks of life. Young people are at risk the most because of the ridiculously wrong notion that Ho**ah is an alternative to smoking a regular cigarette since it is somewhat less of an evil.

1. High school students are more inclined towards trying Ho**ah.

2. Students from financially strong families fall prey to Ho**ah smoking the most.

3. Flavors attract Ho**ah smokers in the first place.

A 12-year-old girl suffered a lung collapse and spent four days in a coma after excessively va**ng.

Sarah started va**ng as a young 9-year-old and used to hide her v**es from her mom. When her mom found out, she tried to stop her but couldn’t.

Sarah got through a 4,000-puff v**e every couple of days during the summer. She bought her own v**es over the counter and became addicted to the ni****ne.

When she became sick and was taken to the hospital, the doctors realized she only had one functioning lung and put her in an induced coma in hopes of helping her recover. Sarah is now recovering, but has been left with permanent damage to her lungs.

Police brutality against Black people is a public health and civil rights crisis in America, but let’s be clear: there is nothing to support the lie that removing menthol flavoring from ci******es would lead to increased over-policing of Black communities.

The to***co industry has spread this disinformation since the 90s, but since being convicted for dishonest and fraudulent business practices, they now have to pay others to do their dirty work.

The people being paid by the to***co industry are working against Black health when they spread these lies.

Many of the chemicals in ci******es, like ni****ne and cyanide, are poisons that can kill in high doses. The body is smart. It goes on the defense when it's being poisoned. First-time smokers often feel pain or burning in their throat and lungs, and some even throw up the first few times they try to***co.

Over time, smoking leads to health problems such as:

heart disease
stroke
lung damage
many types of cancer — including lung, throat, stomach, and bladder cancer

Other problems include:

gum disease
yellow teeth
eye disease
an increased risk for infections (like pneumonia)
a greater risk of diabetes
weaker bones that are easier to break
skin problems like psoriasis (a type of rash)
wrinkled skin
ulcers

Remember, the best method to fight a smoking addiction is to never start, but even if you do, it's never too late to stop. There are resources that can help you.
