Hawaii Raises Smoking Age to 21

Recently, the state of Hawaii has raised the smoking age to 21, effective January 1, 2016.  Much to our chagrin, Hawaii will become the first state to set the smoking age to 21, joining NYC and a few other localities around the nation.  And unlike NYC, this law actually penalizes the young smokers themselves.

Twenty-One Debunked has repeatedly noted how much we oppose raising the smoking age any higher than 18, for the same reasons we oppose the 21 drinking age.  Thus, we are calling for a tourist boycott of the state of Hawaii, beginning on January 1 and lasting for as long as the new law remains in effect.

  1. The Democratic Party is to blame for the oppressive idea of a smoking age of 21. Most of the places in the U.S. which raised the smoking age to this unreasonably high minimum age are Democratic places. I am no longer a Democrat for this reason. It's a shame that Hawaii raised the smoking age to 21. I will certainly be part of the boycott to Hawaii. I myself personally boycott New York City because it expanded the oppressive trend spreading around the country.
