(KTXL) — The Food and Drug Administration proposed a ban on menthol-flavored cigarettes and all flavors in cigars last week. 

It’s a move some have been pushing for since 1964 when federal regulators stopped companies from advertising overall to certain demographics. Since that time, the tobacco industry pivoted to advertising in African-American communities, including sponsoring events like jazz festivals. 

Sacramento County Public Health Officer Dr. Olivia Kasirye spoke with Sonseeahray on Monday about the proposed ban.
