What's Menthol Got to Do with It? Everything

This webinar will discuss that historically, and continuing today, menthol products have been predatorily marketed to marginalized groups and most conspicuously to African Americans.

* The results of predatory marketing has led to 85% of adults and 94% of teen African American smokers to smoke menthol cigarettes
* Black folks die disproportionately from tobacco-related diseases compared to other race and ethnic groups
* Menthol isn't deadly itself, but it allows the poison to go down easier!
* The fight to restrict the sale of these products is picking up steam with San Francisco adopting a city-wide ban on selling menthol and all flavored tobacco products.
* It is important for all tobacco control and health advocates to take up this issue and lend a voice against the social injustice being done.
