2022 has been a massive year for public health. No, I’m not talking about Covid. In recent months, the Food and Drug Administration has launched a number of tobacco control measures aimed at bringing the United States closer to international cigarette regulatory standards. In April, for example, the regulator announced a proposed rule that would ban highly addictive menthol cigarettes. On June 21, the Biden administration followed up by proposing a maximum level of nicotine for tobacco products. Additionally, the FDA announced on June 23 that it would ban Juul, the number one e-cigarette brand in the United States, from selling its e-cigarettes in the US market. Altogether, these changes represent the biggest shift in US tobacco policy in years.

Tobacco control policies work and save lives. They also resonate with Catholic social teaching.

It’s hard to underestimate the importance of these changes to our smoking cessation regimen, but you wouldn’t know it by watching the news. It is perhaps understandable that these changes have passed almost entirely under the radar, buried by headlines about our culture wars, the current war in Ukraine, an ongoing global pandemic, and dramatic upheavals in American politics.

It’s too bad, because tobacco control policies are among the most effective public health measures in American history. In 1965, almost 45% of Americans smoked. Today, that number is down to 13%, which has had a dramatic impact on lung cancer rates, which have been steadily declining since the 1990s. It is difficult to meaningfully quantify the significance of the hundreds thousands of lives saved; it’s too easy to lose the human impact of these developments under a pile of statistics. But each survivor and each life saved has their own story. Multiply the infinite beauty of every human life by hundreds of thousands, and you’ll begin to understand what these falling smoking rates really mean.

Studies have shown that if the US ban on menthol cigarettes had the same impact as Canada’s, approximately 1.3 million Americans would quit smoking. And given that the tobacco industry has a long and racist history of targeting black communities with ads for menthol cigarettes, a decline in menthol smoking would also be a monumental victory for racial justice in public health.

The simple truth is that the war on drugs has failed, and it’s an enduring reminder that public health interventions really need to be about public health.

All this to say that smoke-free policies work and save lives. They also resonate with Catholic social teaching, which at various times in history has strongly supported community public health policies aimed at saving lives, including in recent times vaccination against Covid-19 and other diseases. viral.

These policies also accord with a Catholic desire to defend the poor and marginalized. No one explains it better than tobacco executives themselves. A model for cigarette commercials (the “Winston Man”) said he once asked an executive at RJ Reynolds if he smoked, and the response was haunting: “Are you kidding? We reserve this right for the poor, the young, the black and the stupid. This isn’t an anachronistic, flippant remark from just one person – today nearly three out of four smokers come from low-income communities, and it certainly has something to do with the industry’s various efforts all throughout its long history to target poor communities.

A society that properly values ​​all human life must in turn uphold our collective commitment to protect and sustain life. How can we claim to have a culture of life when entire industries are making billions of dollars from a business model that depends on people’s addiction to a deadly carcinogen?

A society that properly values ​​all human life must in turn uphold our collective commitment to protect and sustain life.

This is the question we should ask ourselves. But too often it gets lost in the weeds of moralizing drug policy debates. Drug control attempts are too often rooted in the stigmatization of marginalized communities instead of genuine attention to public health outcomes. It is not surprising that our efforts to punish drug users, rather than providing support or paying attention to structural inequalities, have failed to reduce drug use.

The simple truth is that the war on drugs has failed, and it’s an enduring reminder that public health interventions really need to be about public health. And smoke-free policies have shown us that these health interventions work.

Catholics have an opportunity to approach tobacco policy for what it is: a pro-life issue. Despite decades of attempts by cigarette companies to deny, distort and deflect, the evidence is clear: tobacco kills and tobacco control saves lives. We know this because our own government’s efforts to discourage smoking have worked. We also know that there is still much to do.

We could start by passing a law that strips cigarette packs of attractive logos, branding and designs, as Australia and several other countries have done. If we wanted to be more ambitious, Americans might look to New Zealand, where the government announced a plan to ban the sale of cigarettes to anyone born after 2008, in a bid to create a smoke-free generation. At the very least, we should step up anti-tobacco campaigns amid alarming statistics on e-cigarette use among young people and invest in medical care and anti-tobacco programs in marginalized communities.

Tobacco regulation, to many, appears to be a largely anachronistic issue, a holdover from the public health debates of the 20th century. But the FDA’s surprisingly bold actions this year have shown us that there’s still room for progress on what remains arguably America’s greatest public health crisis. We could make that progress now, but only if we are willing to look beyond the tumult of culture wars and find common ground to address chronic health crises.

More than a third of convenience stores in the UK want to stop selling cigarettes altogether, a Philip Morris survey has found.

Some 35% of nearly 1,400 shop owners surveyed said they would like to become an “exclusively smoke-free retailer” and help their customers quit combustible cigarettes.

More than two-thirds said they would like to work with other local retailers to help smokers switch, and 58% said they would work with pharmacies, doctors’ offices and smoking cessation services for the same purpose .

This is despite the fact that combustible tobacco products – including cigarettes and roll-your-own tobacco – currently account for 68% of annual tobacco-related sales, compared to 32% for smokeless products such as vaping devices and tobacco products. which do not burn.

The survey – which also surveyed 1,000 former adult smokers – also found that consumers wanted convenience stores to play a bigger role in helping people quit smoking. More than two-thirds of former smokers said their local store “could have played a bigger role in helping them become smoke-free.” A similar proportion felt that a convenience store was “a good place to get advice on smoke-free products that might be right for them.”

However, just under a third (32%) felt that their local convenience store was not equipped to advise them on smoke-free products.

PML’s report “reveals how adult cigarette smokers’ switch to smokeless products has become a new pillar of community-driven retail,” said Christian Woolfenden, MD at PML.

“Rather than retaining customers as cigarette smokers, convenience stores are building stronger connections across the counter to improve awareness and access to alternative products like e-cigarettes and non-heating products,” a- he added.

The majority (91%) of convenience stores sell alternative smoke-free products, most of which began stocking such products between 2015 and 2019.

The majority of these retailers offer closed-system e-cigarettes (88%) and e-liquids (75%). Just under two-thirds (65%) offer heated tobacco products.

“Convenience retailers are embedded in their communities, with a reach unlike any other sector of the UK grocery market,” said ACS CEO James Lowman.

“This community base of convenience stores allows people who manage and work in stores to be fully in tune with the needs of their customers, but retailers also need to look at data from broader research to keep up to date with trends. “, he added. “The e-cigarette and smokeless category is changing rapidly, so it’s important to understand consumer attitudes and benchmark against your own experiences and sales information.”

Over the past decade, smoking rates have continued to decline. At last count, in 2020, the Office for National Statistics reported that just 14.5% of people aged 16 and over in Britain said they currently smoked.

The proportion of revenue from cigarettes, which make up the largest percentage of tobacco revenue in the UK, has also declined over the last 10 years, although the figure has increased by 3.1% from 2021 to 2022, mainly in due to an increase in the rate of duty, according to HMRC.

Of the 1,397 symbol retailers and independent convenience stores surveyed by KAM and Lake Research, 59% viewed the smoke-free category as “the future of sales.” A similar proportion would completely replace combustible tobacco products if it meant an increase in income, and 53% would “if it meant they had a sustainable business for the future”.

However, this might take some time. As Hetal Patel, owner of News Plus, Greenford, said: “If I stop selling cigarettes, customers won’t come to my store because I don’t have any. Then I won’t sell the other goods they picked up at the entrance or exit. This means that my other sales will also go down.

Philip Morris said the move to a smoke-free environment “could seem daunting and store owners might fear losing business”, but argued that “the data clearly indicates that the future is smoke-free, store owners must therefore work on this transition”.

Concerned about the growing use of e-cigarettes and heated tobacco products (HTPs) among young Cambodians and the health risks these products pose, the Ministry of Education on Friday issued guidelines to prevent the sale and use of these products in public and private educational establishments. .

According to the ministry’s directive issued by Minister Hang Chuon Naron, the guidelines aim to prevent the use of e-cigarettes and HTPs as they are dangerous to people’s health and pose a risk of heart and lung disease and long-lasting impact. term on brain development. in children and young people.

The ministry has issued guidelines for educators and students on the effects of e-cigarettes and HTPs to all teaching units under the ministry in the capital and provinces of public and private institutions.

The ministry strictly prohibits the use, distribution and advertising of these products in and around schools and campuses.

The ministry has also instructed all relevant educational units to work with parents, guardians, educators and students of students to identify e-cigarette and HTP distribution sites and report the location to authorities for legal action. .

Health Ministry spokesman Ly Sovann said on Friday that e-cigarettes contain high levels of nicotine, which is highly addictive and seriously harms people’s health.

“The Ministry of Health has banned the import and use of such products such as hookahs and e-cigarettes in Cambodia,” he said.

Mom Kong, director of the Cambodian Health Movement (CMH), said sales of e-cigarettes and hookahs target the 9-25 age group.

He said the Health Ministry issued a directive banning the import and use of such products in 2014.

He added that although the government has placed restrictions on these products in Cambodia, they are openly used by students and other young Cambodians.

Public Health (Tobacco and Nicotine Inhalants) Bill 2019 being drafted.

A local senator has called for stricter regulation of the e-cigarette industry, arguing that a ‘balance’ is needed between weaning long-term adult addicts and risking non-smokers, especially children. , can start vaping.

“We need to try to balance the potential benefits of e-cigarettes for adult smokers trying to quit with the risks that more non-smokers, especially children and especially young children, will start vaping,” said said Senator Diarmuid Wilson yesterday.

Cavan representative Fianna Fail shared the opinion in her opening address to Minister of State for Public Health, Welfare and the National Drug Strategy, Frank Feighan, at Seanad.

Sharing time with fellow Fine Gael Oireachtas Senator Micheál Carrigy, Sen Wilson said vape shops were “sprouting up” in cities and towns across the country, located in “prime locations with very expensive rents”. They seem to be open everyday. I have never come across a store that only sells cigarettes because it would not be financially viable to do so. Something needs to be done about the regulation of these stores.

Last March, the Health Committee resumed a discussion on the 2019 bill on the general public health regime (tobacco and nicotine inhalants).

Sen Carrigy said earlier that people could buy disposable vapes for as little as €5 giving up to 10-20mg of nicotine, or buy vapes containing up to 50mg, the equivalent of 50 cigarettes.

He called for a licensing system for the sale of electronic cigarettes similar to tobacco products, a ban on the sale of electronic cigarettes to minors, as well as a number of other measures, including a ban on the use of vaping in sports fields and more investment. in education.

Sen Wilson agreed, adding to the list a ban on cigarette flavors, which are believed to appeal largely to children and young adults.

Although e-cigarettes are currently subject to fewer restrictions than the sale of tobacco cigarettes, as they are considered consumer products, the EU Tobacco Products Directive regulates certain aspects of e-cigarettes, including: minimum standards safety and quality; notification of ingredients; packaging and labeling, including health warnings; and a ban on advertising in print, broadcast, online and other electronic media, although outdoor advertising is permitted on buses and billboards.

In response, MP Feighan assured that the Public Health (Tobacco and Nicotine Inhalants) Bill 2019, which addresses these issues, is a “legislative priority” for this government.

He said nicotine inhalers, such as e-cigarettes or e-cigarettes, are “relatively new” and the science regarding their public health effects is “constantly evolving”.

“Analysis in this regard is made more difficult by the rapid and continuous evolution of the products themselves. For example, an e-cigarette from ten years ago has nothing to do with products currently on the market. Significant questions exist around the use of these products and there is no scientific consensus on their harms or benefits,” Deputy Feighan added, noting that the likelihood of smoking initiation varied from study to study – the conclusion being that there was a “higher likelihood” among teenagers who started smoking. using electronic cigarettes.

“The bill is currently being drafted by the Office of the Parliamentary Counsel and the intention is for it to be enacted as soon as possible. The bill will need to be brought to the EU level to assess its alignment with single market principles and, subject to that process, it will go to the Oireachtas as soon as possible.

A 24-year-old Beaumont man has been charged with robbing an elderly store employee with scissors and threatening to kill a police officer in Beaumont.

Earlier this month, the man was indicted by a Jefferson County grand jury for aggravated robbery and retaliation. He was charged with two offenses committed on May 21, according to court documents.

Beaumont police received a call shortly before 10.30am from a Family Dollar story in the 1300 block of College Street reporting a disturbance.

Police have learned that a man armed himself with a pair of scissors to get into a cigarette cabinet and left the store with unpaid goods.


Police spoke to a 77-year-old store employee, who said the man entered the store and began shouting and using profanity.

“At one point (the 24-year-old) walked behind the counter where the 77-year-old employee was, armed herself with a pair of scissors and because of her behavior she was afraid for her her life and felt like he was going to stab her,” police said.

Police learned that the man then returned to the aisles of the store, where he allegedly selected some merchandise, walked to the counter and informed staff that he was not going to pay for the merchandise.

The man then left the store with the scissors and merchandise, according to court documents.

“Due to the fact that (the 24-year-old) intentionally or knowingly (placed) a person over the age of 65 in fear of imminent bodily harm or death by committing theft, (the man) was notified that he was under arrest for aggravated robbery,” court documents said.

The 24-year-old also made other threats against a Beaumont police officer, according to court documents.

“En route, (the man) said he would walk behind me and shoot me in the head,” police said. “(He) also said that I was lucky he was handcuffed or else he would ‘cut my throat’. Because (the man) intentionally or knowingly threatened to harm someone he knew being a public official by an unlawful act, he was also informed that he was under retaliatory arrest.

According to Jefferson County jail records, the man is being held on both counts with bail of $100,000 each.

Take a deep breath, America. We have made serious progress against smoking. According to the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 23% of adults were smokers in 2000. By 2020, the rate had dropped to 12.5%. Traditional cigarette smoking by teens fell from 22.5% in 2002 to 6% in 2019, according to the American Lung Assn.

And yet, we still have a long way to go, in part because the popularity of vaping has led to an overall increase in the consumption of tobacco products. A 2021 survey found that 11.3% of high school students said they currently use e-cigarettes; among them, more than a quarter vaped daily. And yes, e-cigarettes don’t have the smoke associated with lung cancer, but they do contain a lot of harmful chemicals that can cause respiratory problems and other health issues. Not to mention that they hook young people on nicotine, which then opens the door to cigarettes.

It’s probably no coincidence that in 2009 the United States Food and Drug Administration banned most types of flavored cigarettes, those that taste like candy or fruit and entice teens to smoke. It would take another 12 years for the FDA to announce a similar but partial ban on flavored e-cigarettes while continuing to debate whether vaping products should be banned altogether.

But there is a flavor that has remained intact, at least until now. After more than a decade of consideration, the FDA is proposing to ban menthol cigarettes and cigars (and is seeking public comment on the plan through July 5). Menthol has long been the most common and popular flavoring for tobacco products.

Menthol has a minty flavor that softens the harshness of cigarette smoke, making it easier to start and, according to some studies, harder to quit. It’s also specifically marketed to communities of color, so it’s no surprise that 48% of Latino adult smokers and 85% of black smokers use menthol tobacco products, compared to 30% of white smokers, according to the CDC. .

Of course, adults have the right to make their own decisions, even very bad decisions, about whether to smoke. Banning menthol, given its effect on the black community, is a double-edged sword. Tobacco companies have targeted vulnerable populations with marketing, causing disproportionate harm. Blacks smoke at somewhat higher rates than whites. But banning menthol could be seen as biased and condescending, with the government telling black adults they no longer have access to the type of cigarettes they like, while most white people can continue with the form of cigarettes they like. they chose. The effect of menthol on smoking rates is also not entirely clear. Despite higher levels of menthol consumption among Latinos, they are significantly less likely to smoke than whites.

But the debate ends with the irrefutable fact that menthol is a gateway to smoking and that it worsens overall smoking rates. According to anti-tobacco group Truth Initiative, the percentage of smokers who choose menthol has steadily increased from 2008 to 2018. And younger smokers — teens and young adults — are much more likely to choose menthol than regular cigarettes.

Our society has a right and a duty to take action to protect children and young adults from enormous harm, as the federal government did in 2019 when it raised the smoking age from 18 to 21. year. Given how difficult it is to quit smoking – less than 1 in 10 people who try to quit are successful – prevention is the best way to kick this deadly addiction.

Menthol’s popularity has already declined among some young people. A 2020 study found that from 2011 to 2018, menthol use among young cigarette smokers increased from 57.3% to 45.7%. But the numbers haven’t changed at all for young black and Latino smokers, the most likely to choose menthol in the first place. And even at the lowest rate, it is still higher than for adults.

Banning menthol is the right way to go, except it doesn’t go far enough. Menthol e-cigarettes are not included, although the FDA banned cartridge-based vaping with candy and fruit flavors in 2020.

This month, the Los Angeles City Council addressed the issue more forcefully: it banned flavored and menthol e-cigarettes as well as cigars and cigarettes. It’s not the first city to do so, but it’s the biggest. Of course, without a statewide ban — a similar California law is pending a referendum on the November ballot — many smokers are likely to buy their flavored tobacco products out of town. . But the bold actions of a few cities are setting a trend. That’s what happened with California’s ban on single-use plastic bags.

The tobacco industry argued that a ban on menthol products would only encourage menthol smokers to switch to regular cigarettes. But a 2020 meta-study that included reviews of places where such bans were already in place found that if some smokers switched products, fewer people started smoking. And surveys of menthol smokers cited in the meta-study found that a significant number said they would quit rather than try another tobacco product if there was a ban. .

To paraphrase an old cigarette advertising slogan, they would rather quit than change.
