24 May Smoking One Day, Being Denied the Next: CA’s New Smoking Laws
As teens, we looked forward to turning 16 because it is sweet, 18 because we become adults and can vote and purchase cigarettes,and 21 because we can drink. However, with a new law just about ready to make its rule known, there will be some change here, with one less thing to look forward to when turning 18. The legal smoking age will soon be raised to 21.
For many, this may not matter because they have no intention to smoke, but it is merely the liberty of being allowed to do so that matters. For others between the ages of 18 and 21, it will be awkward, uncomfortable, and frustrating to switch from being able to purchase cigarettes one day, and not the next day.
California is the second state to raise the minimum smoking age in an effort to curb smoking among teens and young adults. It is a habit with serious health risks and is hard to beat. If you are caught purchasing cigarettes underage, or selling them to someone who is underage, you will face some serious consequences such as fines, brief jail time, and even losing the license to sell.
