I've heard they're worse but I don't remember all the reasons other than just the fiber glass.

Yeah worse sure but how much worse? Enough to ban? Might as well just ban cigs if they're that serious about the health aspect

Honestly though whether this is a good policy or not it's bound to make more people dislike Biden. I dunno why democrats are so **** at playing this game. Biden was there through the Obama years he should know better than to hang his hat on a largely symbolic policy that is going to piss off the working class in the short term and make you look like a nanny state elitist while any benefits from the policy are going to come long after you're out of office.


It's similar to the banning put cigs from restaurants and bars in Ny. Retroactively a good policy but at the time it just made New Yorkers hate their mayor.

Dems need to step their politics game up before they give us another Trump

In Biden's America, we only smoke healthy cigarettes.

The motivation is that the poors can't think for themselves and need the rich to do it for them.

But basically the policy is to ban menthols cause those are the cigs preferred by black people on average? Is that the basic logic?

I don't doubt what you say but this still smacks of Bloomberg banning large sodas.
