We support raising the sales age to 21 & applaud the efforts of the authors but do not support this bill in current form. Critical elements & updates are missing - the devil is in the details on this - we owe it to our kids to get the details right.

While there are some components of the proposal we would like to see strengthened, we support the bill and see it as a definite step in the right direction. We look forward to working with the legislature on this issue.

Cigarettes, cigars, chewing tobacco, and e-cigarettes do not belong in the hands of youth. By increasing sale to 21, we keep these out of clubs and schools. Most 15-to 17-year-olds get their tobacco from peers who have turned 18.
