The Biden administration said on Friday that its plan to ban menthol cigarettes would be delayed, a decision that follows pushback from black voters, police groups, and drug policy experts ahead of the 2024 election.

“This rule has garnered historic attention, and the public comment period has yielded an immense amount of feedback, including from various elements of the civil rights and criminal justice movement,” Department of Health and Human Services Secretary Xavier Becerra said in a statement on Friday.

Becerra said a final decision on the ban “will take significantly more time” following further conversations with stakeholders in the debate.

The update from HHS followed reports the administration is expected to announce a further delay in its decision on whether to impose a ban.

Since when does the WH get involved in things like this ?

They had no clue as to what made this Constitution so great.

So Dems are eradicating African-American communities by selling them Menthol Cigarettes?  Sounds like racist white nationalist domestic terrorism to me.  1-800-CALL-FBI

Latest:

 Project Veritas has just released a video of one of Bidens DOJ attorneys openly admitting Biden is delaying the ban on menthol cigarettes due to struggling polling numbers in the African American community.
