What Should the Legal Age Be – POLL
New York City just raised the legal age to buy cigarettes to 21, what do you think the legal age should be for alcohol, driving and smoking? Take our poll!
People have a wide range of opinions when it comes to these matters and with NYC deciding to raise their legal age to buy cigarettes we thought we'd see what YOU think!

21 seems reasonable to me. Cigarettes are just as harmful as alcohol, so there really is no reason that they should be available earlier.
