Support H5603 to raise the tobacco sale age to 21
Dear [Decision Maker],
As a volunteer with ACS CAN and a resident of Rhode Island, I write to urge you to support H5603 to increase the age of sale for all tobacco products, including e-cigarettes, to 21.The use of e-cigarettes among our youth has reached epidemic proportions. Usage rates of tobacco products have tripled in middle and high schools in the past 2 years. Given that 95% of smoker start before age 21, increasing the age of sale from 18 to 21 will limit opportunities for teens to begin regular daily use.
