The City Council is currently considering a bill that would ban the sale of menthol tobacco products and Gov. Kathy Hochul has proposed a similar statewide ban.

Meanwhile, critics say bans have historically failed to curb smoking and end up increasing illegal sales.

Shanequa Charles, the executive director of the community group, Miss Abbie’s Kids and a member of the Menthols Kills NYC campaign — which is advocating against menthol tobacco cigarettes — joined Errol Louis on “Inside City Hall” Tuesday.
