To curb drug injuries, government bans flavored cigarettes
September 24, 2009
In an effort to curb drug injuries suffered by smokers, particularly children, the government has banned cigarettes flavored with candy, fruit, and cloves, according to AFP.
These flavored cigarettes entice children to smoke and the Food and Drug Administration is banning them in order to reduce smokers who start as children and suffer lifelong drug injuries.
The FDA is also looking into regulating menthol cigarettes or other flavored tobacco products which can cause Texas drug injuries.
