The legal limit to buy Tobacco has changed

Now the tobacco in all of the united states has changed to twenty-one years old. This is good for all of the tobacco smokers under the age of 18 and this decreases the number of tobacco smokers.

The CDC has released much data on this specific topic on how nicotine and tobacco have affected kids under 18. The data shows that approximately 4.9 million middle and high school students were tobacco users last year, and this went up from 3.6 million in 2017.

This is a 36% increase, one of the reasons it is so bad is because of all the electronic cigarettes, which increased by 78% from high school students from 2017 to 2018 and 48% among middle school students during the same time.

This can really scare the parents’ whose kids can very much be affected by this. Many teachers and principals can easily walk into a bathroom and very well catch one of their loved students on a Juul. There are also many of the students that are scared for their mental and physical health. The students that do not find pleasure in doing this get flustered when one of their fellow classmates blows a cloud filled with nicotine and mango scents into their face.

If this continues then around 5.6 million of the kids today are going to have to face death due to the electronic cigarettes.

Lakewood’s very own Spencer Reynolds said, “I think the law is going to help keep these kids off the nicotine”
