The January 8, 2013 edition of the New England of Medicine, has an interesting perspective entitled “Tobacco 21 – An Idea Whose Time Has Come”. It is a must read. We, as a society, must decide if the brave young men and women who enlist at age 18 years old and risk their lives should be allowed to consume nicotine when back home? The statistics are compelling pertaining to a decrease in smoking when age raised to 21 years old.
What are your thoughts?
