Since 1996, the Coalition has been spearheading efforts to reduce the harms of tobacco in Hawai‘i. We’ve made significant strides in reducing tobacco use over the last 20 years, with one of the lowest smoking rates in the nation. Hawai‘i was one of the first states to pass a comprehensive smoke-free air law in 2006, protecting people from secondhand smoke in restaurants, bars, and workplaces. In 2016, Hawai‘i became the first US state to raise the age to purchase tobacco products from 18 to 21.

Despite this progress, our community continues to see disparities in tobacco use and we are in the midst of a youth vaping epidemic. We continue to advocate for comprehensive regulations on tobacco products, including e-cigarettes, to advance health equity and truly eliminate the burden of tobacco in our community.
