Chicago Hispanic Health Coalition to Officials: Maintain Menthol Restrictions

Mayor Emanuel and Members of Chicago City Council,

The Chicago Hispanic Health Coalition (CHHC) strongly opposes any efforts to weaken the ordinance that restricts the sale of flavored and menthol cigarettes.

Over 45% of Hispanic adult smokers use menthol products so we need to remain vigilant in protecting the community from these deadly products. Supporting tobacco control policies is consistent with our mission to promote healthy behavior and prevent chronic disease and health disparities in the Hispanic communities of metropolitan Chicago.
