The Pekin Daily Times is doing an enterprise story package about Tobacco 21 that will be published in May. We are seeking reader's input to the following poll that may be printed in the newspaper as part of the story.

House Bill 4297 and Senate Bill 2332 changes the “Prevention of Tobacco Use by Minors and Sale and Distribution of Tobacco Products Act” to the Prevention of Tobacco Use by Persons under 21 Years of Age and Sale and Distribution of Tobacco Products Act. The act raises the age of consumers that retailers may sell tobacco products, electronic cigarettes and alternative nicotine products from 18 to at least 21 years. It also changes the age for possession of tobacco products and e-cigarettes to 21. The bill makes it a Class A misdemeanor for a person who is under 21 years of age to use a false or forged identification card or to get tobacco or e-cigarette products.
