Agree...deter teen smoking??? Hahaha...they are ADULTS at 18...wow!!

So you can't drink booze or smoke butts, yet you're able to vote for government officials and enlist in the military and risk your life to defend the laws that prohibit you from drinking booze or smoking butts?

T21 laws combine with STEEP & IMMEDIATE increases in tobacco taxes for a tobacco-free generation. #BeTheFirst medium.com/@TobaccoFreeSC/how-a-tobacco-tax-increase-can-save-s-c-billions-by-snuffing-out-new-sm... By a unanimous vote: www.fox9.com/news/shoreview-city-council-votes-to-raise-age-to-buy-tobacco-to-21 www.silive.com/news/2018/06/minimum_price_for_a_pack_of_ci.html#incart_2box_silive-homepage-featured Teenagers, aka children, on allowances and twentysomethings in entry level jobs are easily priced 💵 out of the tobacco market, and by the time their salaries increase later in life they are past the age when 95% of nicotine substance abusers start 🚬 smoking. Teen smoking is furnished by both illegal sales of tobacco to minors and tobacco supplied to minors by older friends, therefore, raising the tobacco age to 21 puts the sources outside the circle of friends of high school kids. juneauempire.com/local/2015-02-03/juneau-assembly-approves-big-hike-local-tobacco-taxes-e-cigaret... T21 helps cut the supply of cigarettes to underage smokers: '95 percent of adult smokers started smoking before age 21. Tajh, 19, is not surprised to hear that. He said he often gets asked by his underage peers to buy them cigarettes, and it gives him chills everytime. He became slightly emotional when talking about how one of his friends approached him with that request. "Eventually, I did tell him, 'No,' " Tajh said. "But the mere fact that he asked me -- it's hard." Kyleel Iniguez said it is crucial that more teenagers speak loudly and publicly on this issue, because public information campaigns ...are not as personal and influential as peers.' www.spectrumlocalnews.com/nys/hudson-valley/news/2018/06/07/two-teen-brothers-campaign-against-un... www.wecard.org Juul Labs announced support for raising the legal age to buy tobacco products to 21. www.fool.com/investing/2018/05/12/the-fda-cracks-down-on-a-leading-e-cig-maker.aspx

City councils don't have the power to do that has to come from the state mpls is over stepping tooo

Stupid..if they want to smoke they will.

21 is the way to go on putting a minimum age limit.

What a joke.

Dumbest thing ever
