Today’s Solutions: February 03, 2023

Is it in our power to take away the right of people to purchase and smoke cigarettes, even if we know it’s terrible for their health? Representatives in Hawaii’s State House think so, which is why they’ve introduced a bill that will eventually ban cigarette sales to anyone under the age of 100. The bill calls for raising the cigarette-buying age to 30 by next year, up to 40, 50, and 60 in each subsequent year, and up to 100 by 2024. Hawaii already has the most restrictive cigarette laws in the nation after it raised the minimum age to buy cigarettes to 21 in 2016, but if this bill gets passed, the island state will become one of the strictest governments in the world when it comes to cigarettes.
