The issue surrounding the regulation of tobacco: whether to ban menthol, carries great importance for public health advocates and tobacco executives. Adding menthol to cigarettes may increase the likelihood of addiction and make it easier for young people to start smoking, according to preliminary findings of a Food and Drug Administration advisory panel considering whether to recommend a ban or otherwise restrict menthol cigarettes.
The NBPA does not endorse or support any product that causes harm to the black community, produces ill health effects, or causes addiction. Yet menthol cigarettes constitute 30 percent of the current U.S. tobacco market. It is reasonable to conclude that any action banning 30 percent of a currently legal market would create and enhance the contraband cigarette market. This certainly causes concern to many law enforcement officers around the nation.
In this illegal market, we have already observed thefts and robberies of local stores; crimes against consumers; and illicit sales in otherwise legitimate business. These activities were brought on by tax increases that were believed to serve the greater good. We are coping with cigarette smuggling from one state to another based on taxes alone.
In fact, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives believes the illegal cigarette market to be the number-one underground market in the world.
Again, the NBPA does not support or endorse products that contribute to deaths among the people we represent. But the question is not one of tobacco usage, but whether a ban on menthol in cigarettes will make the public safer or backfire with far more damaging consequences.
Menthol cigarettes are especially popular among young smokers. According to the National Survey on Drug Use and Health, 62 percent of middle-school students who smoke begin with menthol cigarettes, whose minty taste can mask the harshness of tobacco.
It is our belief that if menthol cigarettes are banned, contraband versions mimicking name brands will enter the flourishing illegal market. These new unregulated products would be sold in cigarette houses, on corners, in cars and back alleyways. Who will ask the young smoker to present identification in the back alley or at the door of a vehicle? Who will regulate the ingredients that are placed in cigarettes produced illegally? We have no desire to send 30 percent of smokers underground to purchase menthol cigarettes.
Our communities do not need another avenue of crime to deal with, and overtaxed local law enforcement officials do not need to be distracted from devoting time to the more serious criminal issues that plague our neighborhoods.
The legal cigarette market contributes $40 billion a year to state and federal governments in taxes. The NBPA would like to see more of these tax revenues spent and focused on smoking prevention and cessation programs, especially among our youth. Funding law enforcement programs and operations that focus on youth campaigns and prevention programs will have a positive effect in our communities.

Before you go into any business, it is strongly recommended that you educate yourself about all facets of the industry you are going to participate in. By knowing what is happening in the market and how it would affect your business both in the short and long term, you would be able to carefully plot a course that your business will take. In the rental property industry, the same holds true what with it being a volatile market at times.
For example, if you look at the data for the year 2011, you would see that it was a good year for landlord as vacancy rate is low. This means that most of the rental properties in the market were occupied for the most part of that year. One of the reasons is still the housing market crash in previous years. The result of foreclosures is that many families were forced to move out of their homes and instead just rent for the meantime.
But how do the figures from 2011 compare to data in 2010? Is there an improvement in the market in favor of landlords? If there is, then can you determine how far this improvement would go in the following years? On the other hand, if there is a decline, can you see what factors can affect the trend? Will the skid be arrested earlier this year or will it continue into the near future?
By studying the data from previous years and taking account the predictions for the housing market, you would have a good idea what would be in store for your business. If it is going to be a good year ahead, it would make sense to invest in another rental property. On the other hand, if the market outlook is not so good, you could brace your business for what will transpire in the next few quarters.
If you are adept at reading data and interpreting them, you are giving yourself an edge to be successful in the industry. If on the other hand, you are not sure about your deduction skills, you can always hire a rental property manager or a management company that can help you out with this issue.
