During the month of February, the WellPower blog team will be considering the pros and cons of raising the legal age of cigarette smoking from 18 to 21. This debate was prompted by legislation that will be introduced this year by Maryland State Senator Jennie M. Forehand (A Democrat from District 17 in Rockville) to raise the smoking age.

We’ll be blogging about the smoking age debate from different perspectives, and inviting others to weigh in on this issue throughout the month.  

We would love to hear from you! Please tweet us @WellPowerBlog #SmokingAge with your thoughts and opinions about raising the smoking age to 21 in Maryland. Or, join the conversation by commenting on our blog posts about the issue.
