Stop Youth Smoking: Support raising the legal age to purchase tobacco to 21 in Texas

This petition had 61 supporters

We need YOUR help to stop youth smoking! 

Help us in supporting a change to section 161. 082 in the Texas Health and Safety code, which prohibits the sale of tobacco to anyone under 18 years of age. We are working to petition to legislatures to change this law and raise the legal age to purchase tobacco products to 21 years old. Each signature will help us get closer to our goal.  

Why is the Tobacco 21 Policy needed?

Tobacco markets to young adults, specifically teens, and takes thousands of lives per year. Raising the legal age of tobacco would cause teens to prevent many different types of cancers and deadly illnesses.
