San Antonio may raise the age for tobacco purchases from 18 to 21, pending the results of an ongoing survey by Metro Health.
The survey, which began September 15, aims to gauge public opinion about increasing the age for tobacco purchases.
"We're looking to continue the survey for a few more weeks. We're hoping to reach about 5,000 individuals in the community," said Carol Schliesinger of Metro Health.
