What America Thinks: Support Is Up For Raising Smoking Age - California is the latest state to raise its minimum age for buying tobacco products to 21, and Americans are on board. Sixty percent (60%) favor raising the minimum smoking age to 21, a finding that has been trending upward. Just 53% favored it in 2013.

Despite support for raising the smoking age, Americans don’t want to do away with it completely: Just 21% want to outlaw smoking altogether.
