Federal Smoking Age Could Jump To 21

“Smoke ’em if you got ’em” if you’re under 21 because you may no longer be able to purchase cigarettes if a new bill turns into law.

Senators Mitch McConnell and Tim Kaine introduced new bipartisan legislation on Monday that would raise the smoking age in the country.

Turns out, several tobacco product manufacturing companies are onboard with the idea, which critics say gives them cover from more aggressive enforcement.

While McConnell admits he understands the concerns, the Kentucky politician tells reporters, “Just the fact that they’re for it doesn’t mean it’s a bad idea.”
