Smoking is one of our greatest public health challenges. Through the targeted marketing of menthol and new emerging flavored products, tobacco, vape and hookah industries are destroying the health and well-being of Black lives for generations. And now under the stressors of the Covid-19 Pandemic, people are using tobacco as a coping mechanism driving rates of use higher than ever before.
