Kieran Shanahan started this petition to Legislative branch Maryland State Government and

     The idea of raising the legal age to purchase tobacco and nicotine products is a very intelligent concept considering how many children are using e-cigs and their correlation to cancer, addiction, lung failure, etc. this aspect of the new law is completely understandable. Officials failed to receive my cooperation with this law when they decided that there should be no type of seniority. People that are over the age of 18 and under 21 have had access to tobacco and nicotine products already. How is it fair that they give us the privilege to purchase these products, then revoke our right to do so?

      I began smoking at the age of 16, No law stopped me then, why would the law stop children now ? If kids want to do it they will find a way to do just so. Currently at the age of 18 i have become dependent on nicotine/tobacco products. I have grown an addiction. Yes, trying to fight that addiction is probably what’s best, but it is my choice to continue smoking. They have allowed me to feed my addiction for nearly a year, but then take it away ? I know for a fact that there are many other 18,19 and 20 year olds that are undergoing the same. If you’re in the military at 18 you are allowed to purchase tobacco/nicotine products , but an average 18 year old isn’t allowed to? This law has many flaws and i highly believe that this law should be reversed.
