Cleveland Makes Tobacco 21+ … Should Tri-Cities?
This week, Cleveland passed a law that made it unlawful for people under the age of 21 to buy tobacco and e-cigarette products. The shift is to try and eliminate underage smoking, and theoretically change the city's mindset about smoking altogether.
The law only affects vendors, not consumers. Smokers can still buy cigarettes outside the city and bring them back to smoke. Sure makes it a pain in the ass, I'm sure.
What are your thoughts? Should the Mid-Columbia region consider a change like this?
