California Raises Smoking Age To 21: Will This Reduce Rate Of Tobacco Use? –14 de marzo 2016 – EEUU

Lawmakers are taking up the approach of "blanket age discrimination" to push anti-smoking efforts into motion, but will this be enough to reduce the rate of tobacco use?

On Thursday, California legislators agreed to raise the smoking age in the state from 18 to 21 years old. The legislation, which consists of six bills, would restrict the use of tobacco products and the widely popular e-cigarettes or "vapes" among teens.

If it becomes the law, California would become the second state in the United States to place a blanket ban on the purchasing age of tobacco products, alongside Hawaii. As such, the new legislation garnered both criticism and praise.
