MA Smoker’s Helpline

If you use menthol (mint or wintergreen) tobacco or nicotine products, do you realize that menthol cigarettes are designed to be more addictive? In addition, flavors, like mint and menthol, are a leading reason that young people start vaping and using tobacco. The tobacco industry has long targeted youth, people who identify as LGBTQ+, and communities of color with their deadly products, causing many health issues.
