“On behalf of the NashvilleHealth Governing Board, I am pleased that our Congressional leadership has made the critically-important move to raise the legal age to purchase tobacco and e-cigarette products from 18 to 21. This will prevent the next generation of nicotine addicts as nearly 95 percent of adults who smoke started before the age of 21. In recognition of Tennesseans support for tougher tobacco and e-cigarette policies, I encourage our state’s leaders to take steps to further strengthen this federal law in Tennessee.”
