When did it happen?
As of May 20th 2020 Menthol Cigarettes were banned in the UK, in an effort to deter younger people trying and eventually becoming addicted to cigarettes. This included menthol cigarettes, menthol rollies, skinny cigarettes and click-dual cigarettes.
Why are menthol cigarettes banned?
Deborah Arnott, Chief Executive of Action on Smoking and Health said: “Research shows that menthol makes it easier for young people to start smoking because it masks the harshness when they first try to inhale.
“In reality, menthol cigarettes are just as harmful as regular cigarettes and most adult smokers become addicted to smoking in their youth.”
“Removing menthol cigarettes from the market will deter young people from starting smoking.”
Does the menthol cigarette ban effect e-cigarettes?
No, the ban does not apply to e-cigarette products, including menthol flavoured e-liquids. The ban is strictly applied to menthol cigarettes, menthol rollies, skinny cigarettes and click-dual cigarettes.
Alternatives to Menthol Cigarettes?
1.3 million of the smokers in the UK are menthol smokers, many of which are adults who prefer the flavour of menthol over traditional cigarettes. Many of which may now be looking to make the switch to vaping rather than going back to the alternative of harmful tobacco cigarettes.
