Cleveland, Ohio Considering Tobacco Purchase Age Increase, Flavored Tobacco Regulations

Null

In the coming weeks, the Cleveland City Council will consider a number of tobacco-related proposals that could have widespread effects in Ohio’s second largest city.

At Monday’s meeting, the council heard a presentation from the Health and Human Services Committee and Councilman Joe Cimperman, which is seeking to do four things: stop hiring smokers for city jobs, raise the minimum age to purchase tobacco to 21-years-old, regulate hookah lounges within city limits and limit the sale of flavored tobacco products to tobacco-only retailers in an attempt to get them out of convenience stores and places frequented by minors.

While nothing was formally decided at Monday’s meeting, a work group was formed with the task of presenting a formal proposal to the council at its Dec. 7 meeting, according to a report from WJW-TV.

Cleveland is home to approximately 390,000 people.

About the author

I strive to capture the essence of a cigar and the people behind them in my work – every cigar you light up is the culmination of the work of countless people and often represents generations of struggle and stories. For me, it’s about so much more than the cigar – it’s about the story behind it, the experience of enjoying the work of artisans and the way that a good cigar can bring people together. In addition to my work with halfwheel, I’m the public address announcer for the Colorado Rockies and Arizona Diamondbacks during spring training, as well as for the Salt River Rafters of the Arizona Fall League, the WNBA's Phoenix Mercury and the Arizona Rattlers of the Indoor Football League. I also work in a number of roles for MLB.com, plus I'm a voice over artist. I previously covered the Phoenix and national cigar scene for Examiner.com, and was an editor for Cigar Snob magazine.
