    Report: Joe Biden Plans to Ban Menthol Cigarettes

    https://www.breitbart.com/politics/2...ol-cigarettes/

    Charlie Spiering 28 Apr 2021

    President Joe Biden plans to ban menthol cigarettes despite concerns from the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) that it would fuel racial injustice.

    The ban on menthol cigarettes will be announced this week, according to CBS News and The Washington Post, citing people “familiar with the plan.”

    The ACLU warned Biden the ban would have “serious racial justice implications” for people of color and more “negative interactions with local law enforcement.”

    “Banning menthol cigarettes risks massive setbacks to our criminal justice system at precisely the moment we should be advancing reform,” the letter obtained by CBS News read.

    But some public health organizations support banning menthol cigarettes because they are targeted at black smokers.

    “For generations, tobacco companies have promoted menthol cigarettes to the African American community, preying especially on African American youth. The results are clear and grim,” said American Medical President Susan R. Bailey, MD said in a statement supporting the ban.

    Over 20 million Americans smoke menthol cigarettes, according to the Food and Drug Administration, but a ban would not go into effect immediately.

    The Wall Street Journal reported last week that the Biden administration was also considering a requirement for all tobacco companies to lower the amount of nicotine in all cigarettes.

    The White House has declined to comment on the record about their plans for new cigarette regulations.

    “We will review a range of policy options in line with the President’s public health goals,” White House press secretary Jen Psaki said.

    Coincidentally, I quit smoking Kools and other menthols round about the same time I stopped being a republican. Both were bad for my health.

    Maybe I’ll quit smoking altogether, though doubtful.

    I used to smoke menthols. It feels like you're smoking a beautiful, tar-encrusted winter morning in New England. To deprive anyone of that pleasure would be criminal. I guess that's why the government thought they were just the one for the job.

    Soda is very bad for your health. High fructose corn syrup, artificial flavors and colors, preservatives, etc.

    Therefore Biden will be banning Grape Soda.

    Although the over reach of power sucks, there is a bright side. On the few times I bum a cigarette, I occasionally have a social cigarette, I won't have to hide my distaste when someone offers me a nasty menthol.

    Try non-commercialized tobacco, any decent tobacconist can make suggestions.

    For added entertainment value store your tobacco in a flap-top baggie with a pack of Zig-Zag whites in your breast pocket... (I did this for several years)

    This is not even remotely funny.

    Millions of menthol smokers will be extremely angry.

    Anything can happen.

    If this isn't a signal that they don't need votes to win anymore, I don't know what is.

    Voting means nothing anymore. Secession is necessary.

    Here at RPF, we don't promote every conspiracy theory - merely the ones we've been made aware of. If there's anything that Ron Paul followers know, it's that bad things don't just happen; bad things require dark and insidious forces acting in concert and in secret to make them happen.
