Menthol cigarette ban urged by Canadian Cancer Society – 20 de Noviembre de 2015 – Canadá

The Canadian Cancer Society is urging the federal government to impose a ban on menthol capsule cigarettes, a product made by Rothmans Benson & Hedges, and new to the Canadian market.

Critics are concerned the cigarettes — which release a burst of flavour when the capsule in the filter is squeezed — will entice children to smoke.

"We're very concerned that these can be an attractive gimmick to entice kids," said Rob Cunningham, senior policy analyst for the Canadian Cancer Society.

Alberta and Nova Scotia already have regulations in place that effectively ban menthol cigarettes, while governments in Ontario, New Brunswick and Quebec are currently working on legislation.
