California Bumps Age To Buy Tobacco To 21

0 ratings

Video Description

"A bill raising the smoking age to 21 in California has been signed by Governor Jerry Brown.
He had until midnight to act on six bills to restrict tobacco use in California, including the bill to raise the legal age to buy tobacco for smoking, dipping, chewing and vaping from 18 to 21.
The author of the bill to raise the legal age, Democratic Sen. Ed Hernandez said if California makes the move, other states will follow.
He said the bill would send a shockwave across the country.
Supporters of the law aim to deter adolescents from the harmful, sometimes fatal effects of nicotine addiction. The Institute of Medicine reports 90 percent of daily smokers began using tobacco before turning 19.
