There’s no need for Nebraska legislators to rush to follow the lead of the two states that have raised the minimum smoking age to 21.
Opponents of the move have raised a legitimate argument against the change. If 18-year-olds can be trusted to make their own decisions on such matters as whether to join the military, rent an apartment or cast a vote for U.S. president and other elected offices, they ought to have the right to decide whether to buy a pack of cigarettes.
