Although at 18 you are an adult you are still young and shouldn"t be able to make that big of a decision therefore if the age is raised to 21 you will see that you shouldn't smoke.

Seriously, Read your so-called question and honestly tell me is was a grammatically correct question. If you're confused, Ill help you. No, It wasn't an actual question. What is was, Was an apparent 18, 19, Or 20 year old pissed about the potential for a federal age increase for tobacco products. A product that only kills 500, 000 people per year.

Let me guess, Your an underage vaper and upset because your "connection" for your juul pods is 18?

Pick another topic and start over, You fail.

And backwardseden, Your claim that firearms are "far more deadly"?

In 2017, Six-in-ten gun-related deaths in the U. S. Were suicides (23, 854), While 37% were murdered (14, 542), According to the CDC. The remainder were unintentional (486), Involved law enforcement (553) or had undetermined circumstances (338).

Cigarette smoking is responsible for more than 480, 000 deaths per year in the United States, Including more than 41, 000 deaths resulting from secondhand smoke exposure. This is about one in five deaths annually, Or 1, 300 deaths every day. On average, Smokers die 10 years earlier than nonsmokers.

Facts say your WRONG.

Firearms have never killed or hurt anyone. Millions of people who own guns and yet, None of them have every reported one of there guns hurting anyone upon themselves. Your issue is with the user of the said firearm, Not the firearm itself. Removing guns only forces a new choice of tool used by crazy people to commit crimes. Fix the problem, Don't blame tools.

I won't accept this debate because I agree with you. But the question that remains is what about firearms which is totally ridiculous and certainly one helluva lot more deadly.
