I don't know who needs to hear this - but if you still smoking Backwood's you've either been to or need to be in prison. But soon that will no longer be an option. As part of an aggressive health directive for our country, the FDA announced Thursday that it will start banning flavored cigars, (including Backwoods, Swisher Sweets, Black and Milkds, flavored e-cigarettes and more), so for the avid blunt rollers - you may need to look for new methods.

"Banning menthol—the last allowable flavor—in cigarettes and banning all flavors in cigars will help save lives, particularly among those disproportionately affected by these deadly products," said Acting FDA Commissioner Janet Woodcock, M.D. "With these actions, the FDA will help significantly reduce youth initiation, increase the chances of smoking cessation among current smokers, and address health disparities experienced by communities of color, low-income populations, and LGBTQ+ individuals, all of whom are far more likely to use these tobacco products. Together, these actions represent powerful, science-based approaches that will have an extraordinary public health impact. Armed with strong scientific evidence, and with full support from the Administration, we believe these actions will launch us on a trajectory toward ending tobacco-related disease and death in the U.S."
