My Reason to Support Tobacco 21

Dear [Decision Maker],

I am a volunteer for the American Cancer Society Cancer Action Network and your constituent. There are many reasons to increase the tobacco sale age from 18 to 21.

95% of smokers start before the age of 21. 56,000 kids alive today in Connecticut will die prematurely from smoking. E-cigarette usage in Connecticut High Schools has more than doubled in the past two years.

I am asking you to co-sponsor HB 7200 the bill to increase the tobacco sale age. By supporting this important legislation you can help us make a step toward the first tobacco free generation.

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