The main reason for this type of legislation is to break the chain of legal-age
smokers getting under-age smokers started in High School. Nothing to do with
whether you're mature enough to decide what to put in your body.I don't think vaping should be treated the same as smoking unless
it's found to be as harmful, though. One smells like burning garbage, to
the determent of people with working noses; the other just looks funny.
Finally something good from the Lehi City Council! So our roads are bad and
overcrowded, water pressure is declining in homes, parks are few and far
between; it's great to see some positive moves from the city!
Most begin smoking before legal age . 21 will make little difference if any.
I agree with George and Max Power. If you are not old enough to smoke or drink
alcohol then you are not old enough to join the military. we know that the
frontal lope which is responsible for cognitive reasoning and behavior
regulation does not fully develop until a persons early 20's, this
inculcates making the life altering decisions to join the military where we ask
people to make sometimes very quick decisions that could end another persons
life and alter their own life's forever. raise the draft and option to join
the military to 21.
Silly and useless measure. But that is what I always expect when
dealing with the kind of people who run for office in Utah.
Thank you Lehi City Council! That this issue has been presented to the
legislature in the past and not received a committee hearing leaves me
scratching my head. This is common sense and can save lives. Let’s get
this done state wide!
Why not raise the age limit to smoke to 100 years as Hawaii is attempting to do?
I would support such a move only if we raise the age of the draft to 21, and
make that the minimum age to join the military.If I am responsible
enough to make a decision to potentially sign my life away, I should be
responsible enough to make the decisions as to what my body consumes.If raising the minimum age of smoking reduces the amount of smokers, then
outlawing guns ought to do away with mass shootings, right?
Silly, because American Fork and Saratoga Springs won't fill that void. This is like when several cities in Utah County didn't sell beer on
Sunday, other filled the need and eventually everybody did, cause were not a
theocracy, and the market should decide, right?The tax on e-cigs is
just another chance for our legislature to pass a sin tax, it's safe for
them to tax a minority. The price won't stop kids, they don't get them
legally anyway, it just punishes legal purchases, and it's all about the
Society seems to, quite accurately, recognize that youths are not mature enough
to smoke or drink until 21.Yet we let these people, most of whom
have never had a job or paid taxes, vote ?!?!!Time to return the
voting age to 21.
I support this legislation.
It has always got me, you are old enough to join the military a kill, but ya
ain't to drink or smoke.
