Allow adults to decide if they want to smoke

New York City politicians recently voted to raise the age for purchasing cigarettes from 18 to 21. What kind of a nanny state is this? These same 18-year-olds can vote and enlist and be killed in the service of their country. Yet these politicians feel that these youths can’t make their own decision on cigarettes. Some of these same politicians would probably vote to legalize pot. This used to be a free country.
