The San Antonio City Council is considering an ordinance that would raise the minimum age to purchase ALL tobacco and vapor products from 18 to 21-years-old. This ordinance would also criminalize possession for anyone between the ages of 18 to 21 who is not accompanied by a parent, guardian, or spouse
The City Council will hold a public hearing on this ordinance on
Thursday, January 11, 2018
City Council Chambers
Municipal Plaza Building, First Floor
105 Main Plaza
San Antonio, Texas 78205
Please make plans to attend the meeting at 9:00 AM (please arrive at 8:30 AM). Even if you do not plan to speak, your attendance is important as it demonstrates the large numbers of people affected by this issue. Of particular importance will be voices of military service members and their families (you can read more about the campaign against tobacco harm reduction in the military here).
In advance of the meeting, please take a moment
to send city council members a message urging them to reject this proposal.
