Since 1987 18 year olds were allowed  to buy and use tobacco products. On September of 2019 The smoking age was raised to the age of 21, as a result this age change has broken our 26th amendment, 18 year olds have the right to vote. So this raises the question, are 18 year olds really adults?

If 18 year olds have the right to join the military and die for our country, or buy a house, 18 year olds should also have the freedom to buy and use tobacco products.

The reasoning for changing the age of smoking to 21 is to prevent deaths from lung cancer due to smoking. Not being able to buy tobacco products at the age of 18 will lead to people selling tobacco to minors, This in which can also lead to the dealing and consumption of marijuana and other harsh drugs. So is changing the age to 21 really going to cause less deaths? In my opinion it will only make matters worse.

From this petition I would like to make it know world wide that the food and drug administration has stripped the citizens of their right of their 26th amendment. Can I get a world wide agreement to make 18 year olds adults again and change this absurd law back to the age of 18 unless voted upon by the citizens.
