    Oregon raises smoking age to 21

    Oregon Senate approves raising legal tobacco age to 21

    Just stupid, why should legal adults not be permitted to purchase a legal product? Why not just ban the retail sale of tobacco period if smoking is so bad?

    If that's what the people of Oregon want. I don't approve of it and I don't even smoke.

    Legal adults (specifically, 18-20 year olds) are still kids in many ways. See also: alcohol.

    The state won't ban it because it is a cash cow. I don't know the production cost of a pack of cigarettes, but its got to be low and they load it with 5-6 bucks of taxes.
    Extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence everywhere but here
    Trump is here because we made an existential bad bargain with China
    1975 was the last time the US had a positive trade balance.
    American students want to be "happy". Chinese students want to rule the world.

    Is pot legal in Oregon? If so, will the age for and tobacco be the same?

    Reagan BLACKMAILED all states by threatening to withhold FHMFs to force states to move legal drinking age from 18 to 21; YES, it was BLACKMAIL ...........
    Reince Priebus served US a 'nothing burger' that Robert Mueller has turned into 37 indictments, 6 guilty pleas, and we are not even done yet

    I don't think that should be 21 either. In Canada the drinking age is 19 and all hellfire and brimstone somehow hasn't fallen there

    Same could be said for single payer healthcare.
