Garden City increases age for tobacco sales to 21

Posted: Updated:

Garden City teenagers have spoken,  and city leaders are listening.

The Garden City Commission voted to increase the legal age of tobacco possession and sale from 18 to 21.

A group of Garden City High School students presented the "Tobacco 21" program to city commissioners in February.  

People under 21 caught trying to buy tobacco products could pay a fine. 

Garden City leaders say 15 Kansas communities have adopted the "Tobacco 21" program.
