In the news this morning, a bill before Massachusetts law makers would raise the legal age for purchasing tobacco to 21 statewide.  The bill would also ban the use of electronic cigarettes from the workplace and would stop pharmacies from selling tobacco products.  According to the American Cancer Society, 95 percent of adult smokers say they started before age 21.  The goal behind the bill is to postpone a person's first tobacco experience as long as possible to prevent nicotine addiction.
