The New York City Council is considering a measure that would raise the minimum age of legal cigarette purchase to 21. Supporters cite studies finding that most adult smokers began smoking in their teens and when other places have raised the age, the percentage of teen smokers has dropped. Opponents of the measure argue that government has no role worrying about such personal behavior. What say you? It is now 18. Is this something you would like to see the Rochester City Council consider?

1. Good idea. Smoking is vile and expensive. It costs untold millions in health care costs and generates lots of noxious litter. The city has an obligation to help keep our kids healthy and the air that we breathe clean.

2. No opinion.

3. Bad idea. I have the right to smoke. Young people wearing the uniform of this country ought to be able to smoke. The city ought to keep out of personal affairs and what we put in our bodies is definitely personal.
