 To 21.  Do you think this will get teens to not smoke?

No lol. The age to legally smoke here is 16 but 18 to buy it. Changing laws won't stop people doing it.

No. The age requirement isn't stopping them now, why would raising it change that?

So if they are 18 now will they "grandfather" the law or will they not be allowed to buy anymore? That would be really messed up.

I don't think so most didn't follow it at 18. Drinking is 21 and I started at 12. Where there's a will theres a way.

Most people start smoking before 18. Raising the limit doesn't change anything.

LOL no. It will make it so that 18-20 year olds are getting in trouble now. What a stupid law.
