Menthol tobacco products including cigarettes will be banned from tomorrow.

The 4 year lead in time was to allow smokers time to switch to other products.

While the ban was brought in to make smoking less appealing to first timers.

Simon Harris Welcomes Menthol Ban

Health Minister Simon Harris has welcomed the news:

β€œThe COVID-19 pandemic has made it more important than ever to quit."

"On 11 May the World Health Organisation said that a review of studies by public health experts found that smokers are more likely to develop severe disease with COVID-19, compared to non-smokers."
