Aloha To Clean Air: Hawaii May Ban Cigarettes

The suggested state law sounds like a bad joke or misprint. It recommends a gradual increase in the minimum age to buy cigarettes from the current 21 to age 100, to go into effect in 2024.

How many addicted smokers live to 100? They typically cough out their final moments by age 60 in a cancer ward. Further, can you just see a group of eager centenarians lined up at the drugstore counter to buy cigarettes for their 75-year-old kiddies? Actually, with many other states making tax income from legit marijuana, it isn’t likely a Hawaii cigarette ban would cross the ocean into other US areas any time soon.
