How Chicago Is Curbing Menthol Smoking Among Blacks

A recent report in The Scientific American gives major props to Chicago’s efforts to curb menthol smoking among Black youth. Last December, the city banned the sale of menthols 150 meters from schools, which will go into effect in June 2014. This move comes after numerous studies found that Big Tobacco disproportionately advertises their products to Blacks.
