The DCrew in Douglas, AZ is working steadily to adopt Tobacco 21. The DCrew’s efforts to raise the age follow years of involvement and volunteering in Douglas.

The youth coalition gathered survey data among their peers and presented the results to City Council. Especially relevant, 87 percent of the 1,318 high school participants supported an age raise in their city.

Youth advocacy and activism fuels Tobacco 21 progress. Students Taking a New Direction (STAND), unites all youth coalitions throughout the state. STAND is a nationally recognized organization that provides direction and technical assistance to volunteer youth. Many states could take a page out of STAND’s book to improve their advocacy efforts. Check out their website here.

Bravo DCrew!

Sounds good... Along wiith that raise the recruiting age to 21 too...Not old enough to drink or smoke or have the choice for themselves.. They're not old enough to fight for a country that would have them die for it, at the age of (18)...

Ya good. How about stores in Winthrop stop selling vapes and cigs to minors first.

I want Winthrop to raise its smoking age to 21.

Great idea

Maybe they raise the legal of being an adult to 21.
