Lighting up in the city of Cleveland could be getting harder for some people.
A public hearing about possible tobacco changes in Cleveland lasted several hours on Monday. Two ordinances are being discussed: the first, to hike the legal age to buy cigarettes from 18 to 21 years old; and the second, to ban flavored tobacco products from being sold.
“I see this from someone who comes from a family of smoking addiction and from someone who smoked during college. It wasn’t easy to quit. I know how hard it is,” said Council Member Joe Cimperman.
