The U.S. Supreme Court declined to hear a lawsuit by Reynolds Tobacco challenging the ban on menthol cigarettes

On Jan 8th America’s Supreme Court rejected a lawsuit by Reynolds Reynolds against California’s menthol tobacco ban.

 

According to the DailyMail on January 8, the U.S. Supreme Court rejected R.J. R.j. Reynolds sued California over its menthol tobacco ban, while a similar national tobacco flavor ban proposed by Biden is in limbo.

 

On Jan. 8, the Supreme Court declined to hear a case brought by Reynolds Cigarettes challenging the ban in Democratic-led California.

 

In 2020, Democratic Gov. Gavin Newsom signed the bill into law in an attempt to discourage teens and young Americans from using vapes and cigarettes. California becomes the second state in China, after Massachusetts, to implement such a ban.

 

Last month, the Biden administration delayed implementing a similar plan for a national menthol tobacco ban, facing political opposition and warnings that it could anger black voters who are drifting away from the president.

 

According to the results of a series of recent polls, President Biden’s proposed ban on menthol tobacco could have “unintended consequences” for him at the polls in 2024.

 

According to the DailyMail’s latest poll results, more than 60 percent of voters nationwide – 63 percent, including 63 percent of Democrats – believe that a strict ban on menthol tobacco would disproportionately harm minority communities.

 

The government is expected to announce in March that the rule will finally take effect. The expected August launch will be pushed back to January, which would be another delay.

 

The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) announced a new menthol tobacco ban standard in 2022 to combat illness and death caused by commodities originally targeted at African American smokers.

 

According to data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) cited by The Washington Post, 81 percent of African American smokers choose menthol tobacco.

 

The move comes amid a series of surveys. While Biden still has higher support among black voters than other groups, his race against former President Donald Trump has become difficult against the backdrop of an overall low vote share, with Trump gaining ground even while refusing to rule out authoritarian rule.

 

The control has sparked a debate between concerns about hidden health benefits on the one hand and the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) and other groups who say the measure is aimed at a certain group of smokers and could lead to black market sales.

 

Hidden unintended consequences could include moving production to China and risky sales in car trunks.

 

Last month, House Republicans announced they were investigating the controls.

 

Based on scientific studies, the CDC warns, “The mint in tobacco drives adolescents and young adults to be more likely to try smoking, but those who start smoking will continue to smoke regularly.”

 

According to the CDC, “Mint makes tobacco more attractive and easier to smoke.” “In addition, peppermint enhances the addictive effects of tobacco tar in the brain. The amount of nicotine in menthol tobacco has increased in recent years.”

 

According to data cited by the CDC, from 1980 to 2018, 10.1 million people started smoking because of menthol tobacco, resulting in an estimated 378,000 premature deaths. During that time, the organization added up the totals to come up with 3 million years of “potential life lost.”

 

“Joe Biden’s decision to ban menthol tobacco is an overreach of power and an affront to millions of Americans,” House Majority Whip Tom Eimer told DailyMaill in a statement.

 

In addition, law enforcement officials previously told Dilima that a ban would lead to black market trafficking, cartel and gang violence, and unregulated cigarette sales. The tobacco can contain dangerous drugs, including fentanyl.

 

In addition, this will have the greatest impact on minority communities, as menthol tobacco is predominantly smoked by black and Latino communities, accounting for more than 80 percent. This is retired New York State cop Elliot Boyce. (Elliott Boyce) speaks. The Biden administration has been blamed for pushing for the decriminalization of marijuana while pushing for a menthol tobacco ban.

 

However, senior Biden officials have long argued that criminal sanctions on menthol tobacco would also help Americans reduce their dependence on cigarettes.

 

“The proposed rules will help prevent children from becoming the next generation of smokers and help adult smokers quit,” Health and Human Services Secretary Javier Becerra previously said.

 

“In addition, by substantially reducing cigarette-related health disparities, the proposed rule represents an important step toward promoting health equity.”
