Federal health officials banned the sale of flavored cigarettes on Tuesday in the first major crackdown since the Food and Drug Administration was given the authority to regulate tobacco.
The ban is intended to end the sale of tobacco products with chocolate,
vanilla, clove and other flavorings that lure children and teenagers
into smoking. The agency will study regulating menthol products and hinted that it might soon take action against the far larger market of flavored small cigars and cigarillos.
