Cigarette Wars: US Curbs Smoking & Ryanair Encourages It
The US Food & Drink Administration (FDA) have announced that they will ban the sale of flavoured cigarettes in the US, a move which is directly aimed at trying to take away a product which mostly serves to encourage kids to begin smoking. All candy, clove and fruit-flavoured cigarettes are outlawed from today by the US government agency, and they have also announced that they are considering banning all menthol flavoured cigarette and tobacco products. Meanwhile, over this side of the Atlantic, Ryanair have announced plans to introduce the sale and use of smokeless cigarettes on all of their flights. According to Europe's biggest carrier, while this is to produce extra income, it was the second most requested item/service on a recent survey of their passengers, so the airline are only really giving their passengers what they asked for. What a load of codswallop!In Sunday's press release, Ryanair mention that 24,000 passengers asked for this, and the spokesman portrayed the idea that the airline is only responding to customers' demands and needs.
