  • I love The Daily Show but y'all often remind me you are for "moderates" AT BEST. This was your opportunity to go in depth about how criminalizing something as trivial as cigarettes (which will statistically mainly affect the black community) is not going to actually help the black community but rather give cops a new tool to blame them of illegal activity. Whether it be for the sale or consumption of the product. If the US government actually cared for the health of black people it would vote in favor of universal health care or acknowledge and address the alarming rate in which black women die during birth.

  • I smoke menthol. This is the thing here. Smoking is legal. It's not the governments job to interfere into people's personal lives. Invasion of privacy and against the law. Personal freedoms are at stake. If the go through with this I promise I'll be hiring a lawyer on this. My personal health is not anyone's business but my own. Besides as much as I've done for everyone in this country, I have the right to live the way I want to without people getting in my way. Especially now considering the way people treat me and the fact there isn't one American I have not brought products on my truck to. Give me a break this has gone way to far.

I don't like cigarette smoke around me either, but not because it has menthol in it. Heck, when someone chews one of them new fangled "ExtrA Minty BLAST" chewing gums near me, I smell menthol!

  • Your boy, Roy there, fittin' to be one of the first to get locked up for bootlegging. This will be just another way to arrest, convict and imprison more non-pink people. You _do_ see that, right? Yeah, I know you were joking. But the reality is, those caught selling menthols after the ban takes effect, if it becomes a thing, are going be criminals. You _do_ see that, right? And who do you think will be the majority of people getting locked up for it? Hint: It won't be pink people. Yeah, it is true, smoking is bad, real bad. Smoking ends people's lives, that is the truth. But a ban like this is *_NOT_* the way to do it. And truthfully, this is not a subject that is appropriate to make jokes about. This is serious, and it should be taken seriously. Nobody wants to smoke. Everyone who has smoked for a prolonged amount of time will tell you they know it is killing them. So why don't they just quit? Yeah, it is not so easy. Addiction is strong, and when it comes to tobacco it is extra strong. I was able to quit caffeinated beverages, I was able to quit smoking green, I was able to quit drinking alcohol. Quitting tobacco... Yeah, I am stuck on that right now actually. Trying to quit, want desperately to quit, but it is... difficult, to put it mildly, "difficult" really is massive understatement in tobacco's case. Have a little respect and compassion for those who are addicted to nicotine. Don't mock them, that is the last thing they need. Instead, offer them a friendly hand, ask them how you can help.

  • Menthol isn't a flavor. It's a builti-in cough drop that makes it easier to get hooked because it's not an awful experience. It's the equivalent of cigarettes with built-in Novocaine. The reason I don't smoke is that as a kid, I had an awful experience, as I should. Cough-cloaked cigarettes are evil.

  • Menthol isn't whats dangerous its the tobacco. Menthol is in Vicks its in throat medicine, it basically soothed your lungs. That's why alot of the time people didn't know they had lung cancer until later on in the stages because Menthol pretty much medicated the lungs/throat. They are just gonna find something cheaper to put in the cigarettes that's toxic.

Meanwhile 39% of black men and 56% of black women are obese, 🤔 I wonder what else the government is going to ban next.
