NAACP President Derrick Johnson on FDA’s Move to Ban Menthol

“We are pleased with the Biden Administration’s decision in taking this necessary step to ban menthol-flavored cigarettes. The targeting and marketing of menthol flavoring by the tobacco industry have had a devastating impact on our community. Menthol-flavored cigarettes have induced many children and adults, resulting in lifelong addictions, health challenges, and ultimately killing our loved ones.”
