“Tobacco 21” is a policy recommendation developed by Tobacco 21 STL, a partnership with local community members. Nearly one in five high school seniors in the Saint Louis Metro area uses tobacco, with use of e-cigarettes and vapor products rising dramatically. Tobacco 21 STL supports local “Tobacco 21” ordinances that raise the legal age for the sale and purchase of all tobacco products to 21 throughout the Saint Louis metro area.

Such policies are projected to save thousands of lives and reduce tobacco use among youth.
