A bill to raise the legal age to buy cigarettes to 21 has passed the state assembly. Two assemblymen from our area were among those voting no. We asked what you think:
We allow them to enlist in the Army...We allow them to vote. We allow them to marry. But they can't smoke. Are they adults, or children? We have to pick one and stick with it.
Kids start smoking when they are 11 or 12 so what’s this going to do?
Good! Raise it to 21 and raise the age to serve in the military to 21 as well.

It's time to keep the public safe, and keep the users safe from themselves by putting them in jail and leaving them there.
