Pediatricians push to raise smoking age to 21

Posted:

(CNN) -- Some doctors are pushing to raise the the age to legally buy cigarettes nationwide to 21. That includes all tobacco products and e-cigarettes.

In Wisconsin, that age is 18. Right now only Hawaii and about 90 other cities and communities enforce the 21 age limit.

The recommendation was among more than two-dozen released Monday by the nation's leading pediatrics group.
