On June 19, Hawaii became the first state to raise the tobacco sale age to 21, and other states are following suit.

According to the Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids, 95 percent of adult smokers begin smoking before they turn 21.

A recent report by the Institute of Medicine concluded that raising the age requirement could have a substantial positive impact on public health and save lives, but we want to know what you think.

Take the poll, and have your voice heard! Results will be revealed during our News 7 Six o’clock edition.
