Biden Administration Advances Ban on Menthol Cigarettes

The Biden administration on Thursday took a significant step toward a national ban on menthol cigarettes, advancing a regulatory plan that could sweep from the market more than a third of all cigarettes sold in the U.S. The products represent more than $ 20 billion in annual sales.

The Food and Drug Administration Thursday published proposed rules laying out the details of the plan. The ban would prohibit the sale of menthol cigarettes and all flavored cigars. It would not affect menthol e-cigarettes.
