Wea ll know smoking is a terrible habit, but it's still normalised in Irish society. 

In Hawaii, however, there are already some very strict laws regarding cigarette sales, and a proposed new law could see the legal age to be able to purchase cigarettes raised to 100. 

Democratic state representative Richard Creagan is highly anti-smoking, and a law he has proposed would essentially eradicate legalised cigarette sales on the island

Creagan is proposing raising the cigarette-buying age to 30 by next year.

The following year, the legal age would be raised to 40. 

In 2022 the legal age would be 50, and  2023. 

This phasing out will see the legal age jump to 100 in 2024, essentially banning the sale and purchasing. 

'Basically, we essentially have a group who are heavily addicted — in my view, enslaved by a ridiculously bad industry — which has enslaved them by designing a cigarette that is highly addictive, knowing that it highly lethal. And, it is,' Creagan told The Hawaii Tribune Herald.

Currently, the legal age to purchase cigarettes is 21 in Hawaii. 


We know that not all foods are created equally: yup, a cucumber and a can of cola are certainly NOT going to do the same things to your body. 

However, and while 'superfoods' has been the dietary buzz word of the last few years, having to trek across town to try and source a €4-a-pop portion of something you can't quite pronounce is just tiresome. 

Actually, it's positively enough to make us reach for a large chips and a garlic bread with cheese combo.

Fear not! Because many truly fantastic superfoods are totally affordable and readily available on everyday supermarket shelves.
