CSP Magazine: Smoking cessation expert discusses possible ban on menthol cigarettes

Release Date: November 22, 2010

An article in CSP Magazine about a public hearing on banning menthol cigarettes reports a ban could create a black market for the product and quotes Gary Giovino, professor and chair of community health and health behavior. "Mentholated cigarettes are at least as dangerous as their non-mentholated varieties, and there is concern about menthol sweetening the poison," he said.
