Increase the tobacco purchase age to 21
Dear [Decision Maker],
There are many reasons to increase the tobacco sale age in Vermont.
Raising the sale age of tobacco products to 21 could reduce the prevalence of smoking by 12%, according to the Institute of Medicine, saving thousands of lives and millions of dollars.
As your constituent I am asking you to increase the minimum purchasing age for all tobacco products, including e-cigarettes to protect Vermont's youth from a lifetime of nicotine addiction.
Sincerely,[Your Name] [Your Address] [City, State ZIP][Your Email]
