Black Pastor Refuses Offer of $250,000 to Oppose Menthol Ban, Asking Other Pastors to do the Same (video)

Black Pastor Was Offered $250,000 by Tabacco Industry to Oppose Proposed Menthol Ban, Asks Other Pastors to Come Forward with their Offers, Too (video)

The food and drug administration is attempting to create a ban on menthol cigarettes.

A Black pastor in Detroit was allegedly offered up to $250,000 to be against the ban on menthol cigarettes like the popular brand Newport which is hugely popular and has been purchased in the black community for decades.

Reverend Horace Sheffield admits he has a personal story about the use of menthol cigarettes when he had to bury his mother in 1971 while she was only 43 from smoking.

People of color are the highest number of buyers of menthol cigarettes and have the highest fatality rates as a result.

Sheffield thinks the ban could save thousands of lives, and he is asking other pastors to come forward if they too have been offered money to oppose the ban.
