Will Nova Scotia Ban all Flavoured Tobacco Products?

WILL NOVA SCOTIA BAN ALL FLAVOURED TOBACCO PRODUCTS?

 
The Nova Scotia government will introduce legislation this spring to ban the sale of some — and quite possibly all — flavoured tobacco products. That includes menthol cigarettes, cigars and cigarillos, pipe tobacco, non-tobacco chews…everything.
 
The government’s concern is products targeting underage kids. Flavoured kiddy mini or filtered cigars are the problem. But everything that is flavoured is now threatened.
 
C-store retailers are responsible retailers. A total ban will unfairly hurt our sales and create an even bigger tobacco black market in Nova Scotia.
 
Support your business and the c-store industry and make your voice heard. Go to http://novascotia.ca/dhw/FlavouredProductsConsultation and complete the government’s consultation survey.
