Winchester, Mass. Seeking More Restrictions on Tobacco Sales

Null

After raising the minimum age to purchase tobacco products from 18 to 21 in March 2014, the town of Winchester, Mass. is looking to impose more restrictions on tobacco sales as early as this summer.

During its March 9 meeting, the town’s board of health will discuss several proposals, including  banning the sale of flavored tobacco and flavored e-cigarettes, implementing a minimum cost on cigars of $2.15 and $5 for a two-pack, and banning smoking in workplaces, public places and the areas around public buildings, according to Wicked Local Winchester.

Any changes will require two of the three board members to vote in favor of them.

Winchester has a population of just over 21,000 residents and is located about nine miles northwest of Boston.

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.
