Illinois House Votes Again, Raises Tobacco Age
(Springfield, IL) — Illinois may raise the age to buy cigarettes or other tobacco products after all. The Illinois House voted again yesterday to raise the age to buy tobacco to 21-years-old. A vote on the same plan failed Tuesday night. Opponents say the proposed law only applies to buying tobacco products; they point out that the legislation actually removes penalties for anyone under 21 caught using the products. Opponents say that includes younger teens.
