Hawaii is considering laws which would incrementally raise the legal age at which you can smoke, until only those aged over 100 can buy cigarettes.

Democratic state representative Richard Creagan’s proposed legislation would effectively ban the sale of cigarettes on Hawaii, and if adopted it would become the first US state to do so. Currently Hawaiians must be 21 in order to buy cigarettes, but under the proposals, the age would rise to 30 in 2020, 40 in 2021, 50 in 2022, 60 in 2023, and then jump from 60 to 100 in 2024.
