Almost all adult smokers begin as children and almost no one starts to smoke after the age of 21. That's why legislation to raise the legal age to sell tobacco to 21 is so important to our children.

Research by the Institutes of Medicine indicates that youth tobacco use could be cut by 16% just by raising the age of purchase to 21.

You can now send a direct email to Columbus City Council in support of legislation to raise the legal age to sell tobacco products to 21 in Columbus, OH by filling out this American Lung Association online survey.
