BATON ROUGE - One state representative is looking to make it illegal for anyone under the age of 21 to buy and smoke cigarettes in Louisiana.

The bill proposed by Rep. Frank Hoffman would raise the minimum age for the distribution, sale, purchase, or possession of tobacco, alternative nicotine, or vapor products from persons under the age of 18 to those under 21 years of age.

The bill is slated to be introduced in the next legislative session beginning April 8.

If it gets the required votes during that session, it would then move on to the senate for approval.
