The tobacco industry has known for decades that flavored tobacco products — including menthol cigarettes, cherry cigars and cotton candy e-cigarettes — attract kids and make the poison in tobacco products go down more smoothly. The flavors attract kids, the nicotine hooks them and, as a result, the tobacco industry captures its next generation of customers, up to half of whom will ultimately die from a tobacco-caused disease.
The evidence is clear: kids follow the flavors. We must come together and ask President Biden and the Food and Drug Administration to prohibit all flavored tobacco products, including menthol cigarettes, flavored cigars, flavored e-cigarettes and flavored hookah.
Let’s make 2021 the year that the tobacco industry is prohibited from using flavored tobacco products to lure kids.
Before sending your letter, please take a moment to personalize it and share why you think the sale of flavored tobacco products should be stopped for good.
Thank you for taking action.
