Grandview Heights Copies Upper Arlington In Banning Tobacco Sales To People Under Age 21


Grandview Heights City Council voted last night  to ban the sale of tobacco products to anyone under age 21.  The measure also bans the possession of such products by people under age 21. Supporters say the higher age limit will curb the number of teen smokers.  Opponents say the standard legal age is 18 and the move punishes young adults. Upper Arlington became the first city in Ohio to increase the smoking age last June.
