21 Years Old To Drink. How About Smoking?

Posted: Updated:

There's a move underway in the west to raise the legal age for smoking.

Colorado and Utah, two states with some of the nation's lowest smoking rates, are considering raising the legal age to 21. This week, lawmakers in both states took steps to take cigarettes from teens. Both proposals face several more votes, so at this point the proposal is far from a sure thing.

If approved, Colorado and Utah would have some of the most restrictive smoking laws in the nation.
