    Probably the only regulatory/legal change that has a chance of stopping teens from smoking/vaping.

    Yep! Just like the National Minimum Drinking Age Act of 1984 stopped teens from drinking alcohol. o_O

    I Really Don't Like when they tack Legislation onto a Spending Bill that has to be passed in One Form or Another. Especially when Congress does so Little legislatively anyway.

    If there is Support in both houses for T21, fine. Write a narrow piece of Legislation and bring it to a Floor Vote.

    But Stop Loading Up spending bills at the 11th Hour will things.

    Agree 100%. On flip side, could be good if it interrupts the flavor ban insanity. PTMA next...

    Makes no sense, they didn't enforce the existing underage laws or a lot of the problem wouldn't have existed.

    Passing a law is easy. Enforcing it tends to be more challenging.
