Flavored Cigarettes Banned North of Border, Too


The U.S. isn't the only North American country to ban fruit-flavored cigarettes: Canada also imposed a ban this week, and unlike the U.S. included small cigars on the prohibited list.

Reuters reported Oct. 8 that the measure that took effect this week in Canada also bans tobacco ads in newspapers and magazines.

A broad coalition of lawmakers and health groups supported the law, with industry critics saying that fruit-flavored cigars and cigarettes appealed to children.

However, like the U.S., Canada did not ban cigarettes flavored with menthol.
