Support SB 248 to raise the tobacco sale age to 21

Dear [Decision Maker],

As a volunteer for the American Cancer Society Cancer Action Network, I am writing to ask you to please support SB 248: An Act increasing the age for sales and possession of tobacco products.

SB 248 would increase the statewide age of sale for tobacco products, including e-cigarettes, from 18 to 21. This is critical in the state because:

-23.8% of high school students in New Hampshire use e-cigarettes, more than the national average;

-almost half of 8th grade students and two thirds of 10th grade students say it's easy to get cigarettes from older siblings and acquaintances; and

-New Hampshire spends $729 million annually on health care costs directly caused by smoking.

The statistics are clear: 95% of all adult smokers began smoking before or at age 21.

Please support SB 248 and protect New Hampshire youth from a lifelong addiction to a deadly product.

I look forward to hearing from you on this important issue.

Sincerely,
[Your Name]
