A coalition of health professionals, education leaders and student advocates on Tuesday argued forcefully for raising the legal age to purchase tobacco in Denver, warning that skyrocketing e-cigarette use has sparked a teen health crisis in Colorado. If taken up and adopted by the Denver City Council, the “Tobacco 21” proposal would raise the sales age of tobacco to 21 from 18, while adding a citywide licensing and enforcement system that would bring cigarettes in line with alcohol and marijuana.
