At its meeting on Monday, the Superior Board of Trustees unanimously passed the second reading of an ordinance that will raise the minimum age to purchase tobacco products from 18 to 21-years-old. The ordinance also makes it illegal for a person under 21-years-old to possess or use tobacco products and alternatives such as e-cigarettes or vaping devices.

Superior joins a growing number of cities in Colorado to pass what are referred to as a Tobacco 21 ordinance, notably Denver, Boulder, and Aspen.

Superior is home to just over 13,000 residents and is located approximately 23 miles northwest of Denver.

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, plus I'm a voice over artist. I previously covered the Phoenix and national cigar scene for, and was an editor for Cigar Snob magazine.
