Guam’s Speaker of the Legislature, Senator Ben Cruz, has been a supporter of tobacco 21 in Guam for the past three years. His work shows dedication to protecting the youth in Guam from the dangers of tobacco use. In 2016, his bill passed the legislature, but was then left on the governor’s desk to remain unsigned. This year, it seems like the momentum for tobacco 21 has finally swung around to Guam, with a 15-0 vote in the legislature to pass the minimum legal sales age increase, it will be hard for the governor to deny this pressing issue again. Many thanks to Senator Cruz for his dedication to public health and promoting the healthy lives of his constituents.

ALRIGHT I GOT THE FLOOR!!! I honestly HATE the idea that adults over the age of say 25 have to have their teenage bosses ok an alcohol or tobacco purchase for someone who is clearly older and in some cases MUCH OLDER THAN the individual buying it!! AND, our 18 year old sons and daughters can voluntarily go to war and DIE FOR EVERYONE'S SAFETY, BUT CAN'T BUY ALCOHOL OR TOBACCO??!! How extremely messed up THAT is!! Oh, WAIT, there's this... WE ARE GIVING 16 YEAR OLDS A LICENCE TO DRIVE A MOTORIZED VEHICLE THAT WEIGHS IN AT LEAST TWO TONS AND SETS THEM LOOSE ON SOCIETY???!!!! If anyone doesn't find ANY fault in ANY of this, then the USA is far more doomed than I thought, SMFH!!
