Health Reports & Data

Access

Making cigarettes more difficult to obtain can help discourage young people from starting or continuing to smoke. Activities to decrease young people’s access to cigarettes are part of a comprehensive approach to reducing the number of young people who start smoking. In Hawaii, it is illegal to sell cigarettes to persons under the age of 18 years and much effort has gone into increasing compliance with the law. In fact, Hawaii has one of the highest compliance rates in the nation. Nevertheless, many young people still have access to cigarettes through other sources. Monitoring how and where minors acquire cigarettes is important for planning interventions to address these sources of cigarettes.
