Facts. I’m not a smoker as I don’t feel like getting COPD. However like you, I believe that it isn’t the government’s business, and that if kids wanna smoke, they’re gonna find a way. Namely the Black Market or a close adult, which the government will never be able to stop anyway.

Yeah but raising the age isn’t going to do anything to stop it. It’s just going to Criminalize It. Look at all the high school kids who are like 16 who vape. It’s illegals but it hasn’t done anything.
@Gavatron2005 You’re absolutely right, I was focusing on the aspect of it making vapes harder to get. But i see your point as well.
I ment 21
Cigarettes kill far more people than assault weapons. "Each year, hundreds of thousands of Americans die from smoking cigarettes. According to the U. S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), over 480,000 people die each year in the United States, making smoking the leading cause of preventable death in the country."vaporizerwire.com/.../"36,383 people die from gun violence every year," and that's guns in general.. not just assault weapons.https://www.bradyunited.org/key-statistics
This isn't a stepping stone for Drumpf, this is just a charade on his part to divert attention from the other 99 evil things he did in the last month
As for banning smoking... this is the 21 century, even marijuana is legal in many places now. What's next? Crack, cocaine, crystal meth?
Actually if you're in the armed forces you are allowed to smoke at 18 still.
I would hope so.
Yeah its always... Now that its too late, lets do something about it that is petty.
I don't get Americans. your drinking age is 21, smoking 18 , sex 18 but driving 16.In my country, and most of Europe drinking 18 but can buy when younger, smoking 18 but you can buy it younger and cops won't even say anything and sex is 15,16 driving is 18
@Nikola99 you talking to me? I’m not American mate.
Just saying about americans. and actually i just fully read actually your brain is developing until it stops working
@Nikola99 yes that’s true but the initial development stage into adulthood isn’t complete in males until early 20s so do your research on it before thinking you know stuff you actually don’t. Patterns of bahaviour and personality are altered by habits such as smoking and drugs etc, it’s literlaly inhibits the brain development emotionally.
And yeah emotions are not a real thing its just chemicals being released into your brain
@Nikola99 if they're experienced and have an effect on someone’s life there very real, but I know what you’re trying to say. Although that is a completely different debate to this so is pointless trying to deflect from the topic in hand.
Hey i smoked from 16 and my brain developed fine i am even considered a genius. My IQ is 174
@Nikola99 well anyone can say anything here so
Fine i will se if i can get the test and send you a picture
@Nikola99 do what you will but I’ve heard nothing convincing yet.
It’s so dumb that you guys can’t drink at 18
@Minato157 I agree
And that’s why they should both be 18+
