Senator Pushes For Statewide Smoking Age

posted by John Baibak - 

State Senator Eric Lesser is calling  for a Massachusetts-wide change to the legal age to buy tobacco  products. 

Lesser applauded the decision to raise the age to 21 by  Springfield City Council on Monday and specifically praised a group of  young activists who pushed for the change. 

Lesser said in a statement  that he voted to raise the age statewide when it came up in the  Senate last year, and he hopes a similar bill will be introduced this  year.
