I watched some of his speech tonight, and it seemed like he did well. Whoever his writers are/slash tin men oil providers are, are doing a decent job of keeping him going. Still hoping he raises our country to the next level, without focusing on dictatorship from his rubes, who want him to kill menthols.

They are just Kools. Read the advertising:             

"Kools. They cool the throat."

They're hardly cigarettes at all.

Just don't ban cigars. I smoke those sometimes.

Ban cigarettes, pop, and diet pop. Also ban Burger King.
If you can't control yourself, that's on you. This is rough ridin' America, rage! You can't tell me what to do, unless I murder someone.

This also targets a very specific demographic and it's bizarre.

Errbody smokes, homie. I don't know what demographic you think this targets, but I've seen just as many green boxes of Marlboros and Newports around white people as I have seen Kools in the hood. Something that seems to bother me about smokers is that they seem to represent a high amount of litterers.

They also have absolutely no consideration to which way the smoke blows. I’m all for if you wanna get lung cancer or whatever but check the wind before you light up. Cross post with pet peeves thread. Smoke away but don’t just ignore who you blowing that smoke by.

I expected and was told that Biden’s Rona Super Team would be incredible. 

Instead it’s just another crap show.

?s=21


They did bring profound and cutting edge mitigation processes:  Wear a mask, social distance, get vaccinated.   

They’re doing a good job of following the plan that was already laid out when they got there.

Did you know cigarette filters are made of small plastic fibers that can take up to 10 years to decompose? But yes, aside from the casting out of butts, habitual cigarette smokers generally (in my anecdotal evidence) seem to be more likely to engage in other similarly callous activity like littering and dumping out old sodas etc. in parking lots and other places people often walk.

Also ...

Here is a peer-reviewed study for MIR and Wacky about menthol cigarettes.

https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0273230014001329

Hopefully this ridiculousness doesn't contribute to more Eric Garner situations. It prob will.

Also also, nicname's dad (an idiot) is a menthol smoker. I used to steal his smokes from time-to-time in high school. Salems. Kool's are gross. Camel crush are gross. Marlboros are pretty decent. Newports are by far the best menthols imo. You ever heard of anyone buying Newport regulars? Yeah, me neither. It's like buying regular Keystone. It prob happens, but no one's ever actually witnessed it.

If there was a gif of nicname thwarting the attempted-flag-taker and then gesturing him to suck it, followed by motioning for all of Hilton Shelter to boo him louder, it'd be better than that auburn gif.

From Nic’s study, saved you a click.

Dad was a Kool Milds guy until he quit about 15 years ago.

It's a right wing talking point (and no offense to 420seriouscat69, but you're susceptible to these at times) that banning menthols proves that Biden is targeting blacks and is actually the real racist.

I must hang out with the most considerate smokers OAT because I have 4 people I know who smoke on a regular basis and all 4 are pretty good about not blowing it towards people (except one who is shorter things blowing up gets it clear of people's head but it does, but at least he tries) and they rarely if ever just chuck their butts to the ground.

That being said, I would tend to agree most smokers are just liter bugs. I also don't overly care to regulate cigs more than they are, we've reached a point where you can't do it inside, and more people are using vapes anyways, it seems to me we have it to a point where it isn't like an episode of madmen or w/e, which is fine with me.

An all out ban on cigarettes would probably be the biggest tax cut poor people have ever received.

I'm not really proposing it, but it makes a lot more sense than banning menthols.

Joe Biden is a real racist and his entire career in the Senate proved that repeatedly.   His BFF in the Senate was a member of the KKK.

Only a circling the wagons nitwit would attempt to claim otherwise.

why is he even doing this?  Did he run on this?  Has there been a huge public outcry over Trues?

It's gross and very harmful but completely legal if you are 18.  This is such a weird out of left field proposal with not a lot of justification or analysis of the unintended consequences.

I don't think a menthol ban would have any consequences at all, other than a bunch of pissed off menthol smokers having to switch brands and deciding to vote R to get their menthols back.

Reality is more the possibility of “stray bullets.” The target is obv teens and new smokers, as research would show. It’s still a foolhardy idea imo. Aren’t menthols generally more dangerous than normals as well?

Or illegal menthols.  and why is switching brands a public health goal?  This seems weird and I hate to be slippery slope guy but the magas better watch out for their vapes.

And how does this effect future booze laws?
