End the Sale of All Flavored Tobacco Products

Removing menthol cigarettes and many flavored cigars from the marketplace will prevent many kids from starting to smoke and promote quitting, especially among Black Americans. These actions have the potential to save millions of lives and protect a generation of kids from starting this deadly addiction.

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.


  • President Joseph 'Joe' R. Biden
