I agree with this. It's frustrating that they're attempting to blame fruity flavors for ushering more young people into smoking. It's not like it's 12 year olds looking for fruit roll-ups who are smoking. It's college students. What do they like? Coffee. Often times bold and spicy flavors. Of course, they like fruity flavors too, but it's not like a candy to them or something.
And, idiotically enough, the national ban on flavored cigarettes (Hey government, get the hell out of my personal life!), didn't
include the one flavor
that actually does
seem to attract a younger crowd--menthol. Ironically, the demographic for people who actually bought fruit flavored cigarettes on the regular was--get this--senior citizens.
Thank God we have legislation to keep our liberties in check. Ugh.
