Arkansas City Raises Tobacco Age

Make It Count

HARRISON, AR — Starting in January of next year,  if you’re under age 21 you won’t be allowed to buy any tobacco products. 

The Harrison, Arkansas City Council passed the ordinance with a unanimous vote last Thursday. 

The initiative called “Tobacco 21” is a nationwide effort. 

The group in Harrison behind the law is called “Ignite”, and it includes a group of Harrison High School students – who went before the city council a couple of weeks ago with their concerns about tobacco use among their peers.      

The students are supported by North Arkansas Partnership for Health Education and the Boone County Substance Abuse Coalition.
