Right from topix homepage.

" the minty-tasting brand of cigarette is also consumed more often by low-income smokers and minorities. African-Americans are more than twice as likely to smoke menthols as whites and Hispanics. In fact, the FDA is funding research into racial preferences for menthol products, the report notes, to see if there is a genetic predisposition among some minority groups for consuming them. "

Many years ago there was an urban legend that menthol cigarettes (through some unknown chemical reaction with THC) could prolong a marijuana high.

It was widely circulated, hence the demand for menthol cigarettes spiked (probably by a manufacturer to stimulate lagging sales).

I no longer think marijuana is widely used in the black community, so this couldn't be the reason.

They like their menthols. The interaction with the store employee usually starts with "Gimme a pack of them Newports."

Is this seriously true? I never heard the marijuana tie in before?
