Columbia, Mo. Considers Raising age to 21 to Buy Cigars

COLUMBIA, Mo.  •  Columbia City Council members are studying whether to ban indoor use of electronic cigarettes and raise the minimum age to buy tobacco products such as Cigars in the city to 21.

Colombia is going full force with banning anything that even resembles a cigar,  even ecigars are being targeted.  Though they aren’t even made with Tobacco.

Columbia banned smoking at bars, restaurants and other indoor public places in 2007.

The anti-Cigar city council has been declaring war on cigars for quite some time now.  The problem is that all this smaller cities have been doing similar actions over the past several years leaving large areas of the United States with a virtual banning of cigars.

This is a troublesome trend in recent years and it flies in the face of hundreds of years of tradition within the United States.   When Thomas R. Marshall stated “What this country needs is a good 5 cent cigar”. he was cheered on by the crowd,  however clearly Columbia , Mo. does not agree.
