    Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) and Senator Tim Kaine (D-VA) speak about their proposal to raise the age to purchase tobacco from 18 to 21. Kaine says, "We're backsliding.

I hate these stupid senetors. Why should I have to be 21 to buy tobacco products if I’m old enough to fight for my country at 18, doesn’t make any sense. if they do that then they should at least grandfather the people that are 18-20🤬😡😡

e-cigarettes are not tobacco products. this is backwards AF. they're doing this to make vaping more difficult, so the kids get back on cigarettes. Cigarettes are easier to get.

More maggots making more laws. Well since you maggots allow abortions and murder of unborn infants, why should you care what kids do? What's next? Take their rights to vote away too? Why can't they choose at 18 what they can do with their bodies just like the women who say the same thing with abortion? So an 18 year old girl can go kill her unborn baby, but not be able to buy a pack of smokes or cherry flavored vape? Or even cherry snuff? Smells very U.N. American....

Lol the one issue that both parties agree on, and the people are upset at them, and I don't get it. Smoking litterly has no benefit to your health at all, and like they said, kids are using them more and more nowadays. Something that has no health benefit needs to be regulated, just like heroin and all those other bad drugs. And people keep comparing it to enlistment. We need mandatory enlistment because without it, we might not even have a country if we go into a big war because we wouldn't even have enough soldiers. Enlistment is a much bigger and much more necessary issue then smoking or drinking or gambling......

@Aleksandr Obesity is not nearly as bad as risking getting heart disease, lung cancer, or a stroke....... If you go by your logic then why don't we just legalize heroin or opioids? There bad for you but it's not the state's job to stop you from making poor decisions...... It's the health risk AND the addiction of the product that makes it bad. Sugar is not necessarily bad, lots of sugar is,,, and for most people it's not addicting. Smoking/drugs are both very addicting and very dangerous...... And they aren't stopping people from smoking... They are just making it so/encouraging people to buy it when they're older so maybe they could make a smarter decision before getting addicted to it.....

Lots of people do things which have no health benefit; you eat sugar, right? Sugar is connected to hundreds of health problems, including obesity which affects far more Americans than smoking. If I can be forced to fight and die in a war, why can't I choose to make decisions which may have negative health benefits? It's not the state's job to stop people from making poor decisions, only to encourage them to make positive ones. I don't want to live under a nanny state.

Good point. The so-called soft drugs, nicotine, THC and alcohol cause chronic illnesses -- the single most expensive and ends up with people living the absolute worst lifestyles you can imagine are treated entirely too lightly by our Dear Leaders. On the other hand, the so-called "hard" drugs, cocaine, meth and heroin, are all treated with severe penalties, fines and persecution, but guess which kind of drugs actually do the least harm? The "hard" drugs. Hard drugs kill their victims much more quickly thereby costing society much less in the short run. Either way, trying to impose your personal views on another person at gunpoint is the real vice at work here. The wages of self-righteousness are destruction and death.

When the GOP commits massive crimes and fraud they "take the moral high ground" by going tough on crime and starting wars against drugs, illnesses, and most recently the "terrorism" that they themselves created, funded and faked (9/11 anyone? b/c implosions don't look like collapses due to airplanes...21st century Operation Northwoods). But anyone who's interested in the truth is just a "conspiracy theorist". I only hope that if the dems impeach Trump they have the goods to impeach Pence, McConnell & Graham and throw the rest of the GOP leaders in prison too.
