Observing Menthol Bans in Canada

07/2016

After a recent menthol ban in the Canadian provinces of Alberta and Nova Scotia, researchers from the Institute for Global Tobacco Control (IGTC) at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health found that many menthol “replacement” packs (packs with similar coloring or flavor without menthol) are on sale. Almost 90 percent of the redesigned packs are marketed as a different, smooth alternative to menthol or regular cigarettes. Read the study here.

IGTC completed this research in partnership with the Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids and the Ontario Tobacco Research Unit.
