Raise the age of sale of tobacco products to 21
95% of adults who smoke started before the age of 21.
According to the Institute of Medicine, raising the national age of sale of tobacco products to 21 could help reduce the prevalence of smoking by 12%, saving lives and dollars. By raising the legal sale age for these products, we aim to decrease the burden of tobacco-related illness and healthcare costs to Ohioans.
Please sign our petition asking lawmakers to support legislation to raise the age of sale of tobacco products to 21.
Thank you for your support of increasing the age to purchase tobacco products to 21.
