It was declared that the menthol cigarettes would be banned by the last year May, but according to the ECHO report, these cigarettes will be abandoned by May 2020. According to the tobacco law and order in just three years of time span, menthol cigarette will not be available.
The weeding out phase incepted in May 2016 and will be ending on May 20, 2020.
Both the products – roll your own tobacco and menthol cigarette will be banned.
The charitable organization Action on Smoking and Health (ASH) is triggering to ban the menthol cigarette to prevent the young generation from smoking.
There will be certain changes in the availability of menthol cigarettes by May 2021- there will be a full ban on the packets of 10 cigarette pack of the menthol cigarette.
Amanda Sanford of ASH stated the following:-
Cigarettes are already costly.
More people will be quitting smoking due to the continuous increase in the price of the cigarettes.
The sole motto of stopping the availability of 10 cigarettes packets is that people have to arrange more money for a larger pack.
This step will also adversely affect the poor smokers which comprise of young smokers.
The current price of a packet of 10 menthol cigarettes is hardly £3 or £4, which does not affect the pockets of the young smokers a lot. But it is tough to pay £6/£7 or £9 by the young people who will gradually help them to quit smoking.
The regime of banning the menthol cigarettes will be undoubtedly very beneficial for all the menthol cigarette smokers as this will save them from being ill and getting prone to dangerous diseases.
