At 18, we are legally considered adults, so why raise the legal smoking age to 21? Whilst smoking is detrimental to our health, it should never be the role of government to dictate how adults live our lives. Whether you are a smoker or not, it’s worrying that the government now feels it is okay to ban a certain legal product from a subsection of adults. What next? Alcohol? Sugar? In a liberal society adults should be free to make whatever decision they like. Smokers contribute more in tax than they cost the NHS. Smoking is responsible for less deaths each year than alchol or obesity, so why attack a minority of adults who choose to smoke? End the war on the smoker and keep the legal age at 18!
