Raising the Smoking Age to 21? Young New Yorkers React


Do age-based prohibitions on tobacco and alcohol actually encourage responsible behavior among young people?

Reason TV visited the campus of New York University (NYU) to ask young adult smokers what they think of New York City Council (and mayoral hopeful) Speaker Christine Quinn's new bill that would raise the age to legally buy cigarettes from 18 to 21.

About 2 minutes.
