Did you know menthol cigarettes are now banned?

I certainly didn't, but it's the case both here in France and in the UK, since May 20, 2020 - that interfering EU strikes again!

Yes, but in France you can now buy a menthol impregnated sheet (for 2€50) that fits into the cig packet and after a few hours the cigs are menthol flavoured...so what was the point in banning menthol cigs? :roll:
