      Poll: Raise Smoking Age?

      Poll: Raise Smoke Age?

      The latest health proposal in New York City would raise the minimum age for tobacco purchases from 18 to 21. The proposal comes from City Council Speaker and mayoral candidate Christine Quinn. Texas recently attempted to pass legislation changing the age from 18 to 21 but it failed. Several states have a 19 age limit for the purchase of cigarettes. New York's mayor recently unveiled a plan to keep cigarettes out of sight in stores until an adult customer asks for a pack.

      Tonight in the Daily Pulse we're wondering: Would you support raising the minimum age for tobacco purchases from 18 to 21? Yes or no? Why or why not?
