The legal age to purchase tobacco products in St. Lawrence County may soon be increased. That's because lawmakers there are considering a proposal which calls for the age to be upped from 18-years to 21-years old.


At a meeting Monday, the St. Lawrence County Public Health Director made the case to legislators to make the change, calling it potentially the most "impactful decision" they could make.


A similar proposal was passed in New York City a few years ago, and since five other counties within the state have also increased the legal age to buy tobacco products to 21-years old.
