Menthol in Tobacco Products: What LHDs Can Do
Online Webinar
Dates:
7/9/2013 1:00 PM 2:00 PM
Tobacco companies add flavors to their products to mask the harsh taste of tobacco, making it easier for young people to start smoking. That’s why Congress banned the sale of flavored cigarettes in 2009. But Congress made one exception to the flavor ban, deferring action on the most popular of all flavors — menthol — and directing the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to decide whether continued sale of menthol cigarettes is “appropriate for public health.” Unfortunately, in the nearly four years since the law was enacted, the FDA has studied the issue but failed to take action to prohibit menthol in tobacco products. During this webinar, experts from the Tobacco Control Legal Consortium will discuss what local health departments can do to press the FDA to take bold action while also considering local policy options to address the devastating public health impact of menthol in tobacco products.
