Age-restricting tobacco law prevents nothing

Loryn Kykendall, [email protected]

February 24, 2020

Let me be clear: I do not support the use of tobacco by anyone of any age. However, the new law preventing anyone under 21 from buying tobacco products should not have been passed.

In America, teachers protesting is often frowned upon. But it shouldn’t be. Educators should feel free to stand up for what they believe in just like any other citizen would. They should be able to attend protests without fearing repercussions. They should even be allowed to protest the very school...

In January, President Donald Trump and his administration announced that they will be restricting birth tourism, which is when women travel to another country for the purpose of giving birth in that country.

The growing global health concern right now is the coronavirus, a type of virus that is known to cause respiratory illness.

College students are known for being broke. We scrounge up just enough money to get some ramen or a four for $4 from McDonald’s. We take the cheapest way to do things so we don’t spend what little money we have. So, how do our parents expect us to invest money? Last week I was having a convers...
