Starting June 9th, people age 18, 19, and 20, will no longer be able to purchase tobacco products in California. Currently, you have to be at least 18 years old to buy cigarettes, but this is a move towards lowering teen smoking, an act which we are all aware has serious health risks. The Institute of Medicine conducted a study that resulted in 90% of daily smokers admitting to have begun smoking before they were 18.
California is the second state, behind Hawaii, to raise the legal smoking age and we will not be surprised if other states follow.
Anyone who is caught selling tobacco products to individuals under the age of 21, after the law change, can be charged with a misdemeanor. They will have fines, can face jail time, and may lose their license to sell product.

Bail bonds always receive negative connotation because it is a concept that releases suspected, not yet convicted or acquitted, individuals from jail. Many people think that those out on bail will simply skip town and ignore court. But they don’t really know the facts about the bail bond industry, do they?
- Defendants released on bail are more likely to make all their court appearances than defendants released on recognizance (release without a financial payment).
