HONOLULU, Hawaii (The Adobo Chronicles, Honolulu Bureau) – Smoking cigarettes could reduce one’s life expectancy by 10 years, according to medical experts. So the state of Hawaii wants to take back those 10 years.
The Rainbow State wants to raise the legal smoking age to 100, effectively banning cigarettes for the vast majority of its residents. Thanks to a new bill proposed by Democrat Richard Creagan.
It will need to pass through the state legislature and weather a potentially strong backlash from tobacco companies in order to become state law.
Dr Creagan, who was an emergency room physician before he was elected as state representative in 2014, calls the cigarette “the deadliest artefact in human history” in the bill.
In January 2017, Hawaii became the first US state to raise its smoking age to 21. In other US states the legal age is usually 18 or 19.
So if you want to live and live long in Paradise, go Hawaii!!!

MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – The entire country had been holding its breath after Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte publicly admitted that his recent endoscopy and colonoscopy may have revealed something — perhaps, a “growth.” Duterte had said that if it’s cancer, he’ll let the Filipino people know.
As anyone can imagine, Duterte’s critics and members of the diminishing Opposition could only be elated at the news. This, they thought, could only be their only chance of getting back in power by Leni Robredo succeeding Duterte in the event that he gets incapacitated.
Well, today, Duterte critics got the shock of their lives after the President’s medical team revealed the rest results of his medical tests.
Indeed, there was not one “growth” but two, found in the President’s colon and esophagus.
These were Davao durian seeds, which the President had previously accidentally swallowed. Doctors immediately removed the growths.
All’s well that ends well. Except for the Opposition.
