Ohio could be the next state to raise the legal age limit to buy tobacco products from 18 to 21. Governor Mike DeWine proposed the change in the two-year operating budget that needs signed by the end of the month. President of the Preventing Tobacco Addiction Foundation or Tobacco 21, Dr. Rob Crane, says he agrees with raising the age limit, but not the language of the bill being proposed. The Tobacco 21 movement has reached cities across the country and in Ohio, including Columbus, Cleveland, and Akron.
