A generational ban on tobacco?

Kelsey Walling/Tribune-Herald Karl Stasik poses for a portrait Friday in Hale Hookah in Hilo. Stasik opened the shop and hookah lounge in 2015, six months before the legal age for tobacco consumption was raised from 18 to 21. Stasik said the current push to ban flavored tobacco would kill his business, as would a proposed all-out tobacco ban for anyone born after 2003.

Hawaii could be the first state in the nation to ban the sale and possession of tobacco for an entire generation.
