Flavored Cigars Replacing Cigarillos in Nanaimo
The Tobacco act had forced the stores in Nanaimo to take the small flavored cigars and cigarettes off their display cases.
Some retailers put the large flavored cigars in their place, as the law does not cover them.
Terry McNabb, owner of the Subway Convenience Store on Departure Bay Road, revealed that it is a misuse of time and money. He revealed that the producers have put in more tobacco in cigars, in order to make them bigger. Also, they removed the filters and put flavors like grape and cherry in them.
McNabb revealed that he was aware that a ban is going to be imposed and, therefore, he had chucked out the stock a month ago.
Employee of Occidental Liquor Store on Selby Street, Jeannie McCormick, said that the flavored cigarillos are being sent back to the Companies and flavored cigars are taking their place.
She said that they were asked to get rid of the cigars with filters.
Gary Holub, a Spokesman with Health Canada disclosed that the law applies to small flavored cigars, flavored blunts and cigarettes. She stated that the law has ordered the store owners to keep this product out of the shelf because they were attracting the youth.
