The subject of raising the minimum smoking age to 21 isn't something new, many states have been tackling the issue including Vermont. The Green Mountain State recently sat down and voted on to raise or keep it at 18.

The Vermont House Committee rejected the legislation on Tuesday.

This came after Dr. Harry Chen, the state's health commissioner, publicly stated that adults 18-20 should have the right to buy tobacco products as they are legally adults.
