Evanston’s Tobacco 21 Initiative

Evanston is leading efforts in youth tobacco prevention by becoming the first community in the state  to make recommendations to the City Council to raise the age of purchase, use and possession of tobacco and nicotine related products from 18 to 21. This month, Evanston’s Human Services committee unanimously voted to recommend that the city increases its age limit, as other states nationwide have seen smoking rates among high school students cut in half once the ordinance is adopted.  Read more in Evanston Now.
