A federal law recently rose smoking age to 21 years old and now, the state also is planning to make a similar change.

On Friday, President Trump made the change a law as a part of one spending agreement worth $1.4 trillion.

However, the question which remains is whether it will really help keep teenagers from being addicted to dip, cigarettes as well as other tobacco-based products?

There are many smoking-related legislation and ideas which could affect the smokers residing in Michigan. However, one of these, introduced in the year 2017, is increasing the smoking age to 21 from 18.

In about 9 months from now, selling vaping products or tobacco to any individual under the age of 21 years will be considered illegal as per the federal law. This is something which the health officials are eagerly looking ahead to since a long time now.

As per a national research, one in four school seniors accepted that he/she was addicted to nicotine. The local smoke stores explain a lot about this as young individuals do not consider the quantity of nicotine that they are vaping.

The officials now are just expecting that the age limit going up would help keep such products away from the hands of the younger generations.

The 21 age change legislation is likely to come into effect early upcoming fall.
