On July 6, 2022, WLF submitted formal comments to the Food and Drug Administration on its proposed menthol cigarette and flavored cigar bans. The comments explain why the bans would merely inconvenience smokers and not cause smokers to quit. The bans would also create a thriving black market for illegal cigars, cigarettes, and accessories that the FDA could not regulate. These unregulated products would be more dangerous than those on the market now. Finally, WLF’s comments explain how the bans would disproportionately affect marginalized groups.
