The legal smoking age should be raised from 18 to 21. Most adults who smoke started smoking at the age of 18. Raising the smoking age would cause a decrease in the number of young people who smoke. Another reason why the age limit should be raised is because their would be many health benefits for young people. There would be a decrease in the number of heart attacks, lung cancer and overall deaths amongst youth. Finally, states in America such as Hawaii and California have already raised the le...
