Washington could become the first state to raise its legal smoking age from 18 to 21.
On Wednesday, Washington Attorney General Bob Ferguson backed a bill that would increase the age requirement for all tobacco products. Identical bills have been filed in the state's House and Senate proposing the changes.
We've seen similar measures go into effect in cities and counties across the country, including New York City and Needham, Massachusetts.
