Kansas Cities Consider Raising Tobacco Purchasing Age

KSAL StaffNovember 19, 2015

Kansas City, Missouri, and Kansas City, Kansas, are considering raising the minimum age to purchase tobacco products.

The governing bodies in both cities will vote on proposals today that would raise the age to buy tobacco and other nicotine products from the current 18 years of age to 21-years-old.

The proposals are being pushed by the group Tobacco 21 KC, which is an initiative involving the Chamber of Commerce and several health organizations. Tobacco 21 officials note that more than 95-percent of long-term smokers picked up the habit before the age of 21.
