New Research Finds Statewide Menthol Cigarette Bans Backfire

May 8, 2024

Most of the measures taken to date have been at the state level, but new research suggests that this approach has backfired. The better alternative, researchers suggest, is a higher tax on menthol cigarettes, or a national ban at the federal level.
