  • Ohio joins a few other states in the U.S. by raising the legal smoking age to 21 years old.
  • Ohio residents must be 21 years or older to purchase cigarettes, cigars, and other smoking or vaping accessories. 
  • In addition, the administration also proposed a tax on vaping products. 

 

If you live in Ohio, you will now have to wait until you are 21 years old to purchase cigarettes and other tobacco products. Recently, this bill was signed by Governor Mike DeWine. The new law states that Ohio residents must be 21 years or older to legally buy cigarettes, cigars, rolling papers, vape pens, and any other accessories that are used in smoking or vaping.

What happens if you live in Ohio, are 18 years old and have already been purchasing these products? DeWine vetoed a provision that would have grandfathered people aged 18-20 currently into purchasing these products.

According to Cleveland.com, DeWine thought it would have been difficult to enforce. He said, “And I also felt, frankly, that we should not be giving up on a bunch of kids and saying to these kids, it’s ok for them to become addicted to nicotine.”

Ohio is not the only state in the U.S. to change the legal smoking age. Illinois, Virginia, and Texas all have the same law. The downfall of this law? The change estimates in a state tax loss of about $20 million per year.

However, it seems that DeWine is more concerned with public health in Ohio. His administration notices many teens using e-cigarettes or vapes. The company Juul, which makes vape devices, has spoken out backing the new change. However, it seems they just want to avoid more rules on selling their products.

Some anti-tobacco advocates don’t even really love the Tobacco 21 proposals. Their reasoning? They say it is too hard on teens and not hard enough on retailers. Perhaps they believe retailers should be targeted and asked to stop selling these types of products.

In the Ohio state budget, they also proposed a new tax on all vaping products. The tax would be 10 cents per milliliter. In conclusion, what do you think about changing the legal smoking age to 21 years old and taxing vaping products?

Do you remember those crazy anti-drug public service announcements from the ’60s?

The Star Studded ‘Cats’ Musical Movie Adaptation Trailer Is Here And It’s Very Off-Putting

This article is from Do You Remember. Click the title to hop over there.

DoYouRemember? Nostalgia Lives Here

  • ‘Cats’ is a musical by Andrew Lloyd Webber that became popular in the ’80s.
  • The inspiration for the musical is from T.S. Eliot’s book ‘Old Possum’s Book of Practical Cats.’
  • In addition, the musical is now being turned into a film, set to premiere this December and includes a star-studded cast. 

 

Cats is a popular musical by Andrew Lloyd Webber. It is based on the book Old Possum’s Book of Practical Cats by T.S. Eliot. This year, director Tom Hooper, who is also responsible for other musical films such as Les Misérables, is turning the musical into a film and many famous stars have already signed on to play “the Jellicles.”

Recently, a trailer for the film was also released, which you can watch below. The film will premiere on December 20, 2019, just in time for Christmas. Interestingly, the actors will not be wearing cat suits like in the musical. For instance, the design of the cats will be from motion capture. Hooper calls it “Digital Fur Technology.”

There will reportedly be new songs in the film and Andrew Lloyd Webber worked on them. Last year it was reported that he was working on a new song for Victoria in the film. We can’t wait to hear what the new song will be like!

Judi Dench has opened up about the time she was almost cast in the ’81 musical. Right before opening, she snapped her Achilles tendon and could not be in the musical. Many years later, she finally has her turn to be a part of Cats. How cool is that?

Teen Wears Her Mother’s Wedding Dress To Prom

This article is from Do You Remember. Click the title to hop over there.

DoYouRemember? Nostalgia Lives Here

Grace Jeyes decided to wear something very different to her prom. Grace is from Melton Mowbray, Leicester, England. Instead of buying a trendy new prom dress, she wanted to wear her mother’s wedding gown. She truly stunned in the white wedding dress from 1998.

Grace paired the white dress with red accents including lipstick, nails, a clutch, and heels. Her reasoning for raiding her mother’s closet? She didn’t see the point in buying a new dress that she would likely only wear once. The frugal fashionista found her mother’s wedding gown and it fit perfectly. She knew instantly that she had to wear it to her prom.

The wedding dress looks gorgeous on Grace

She didn’t actually tell her mom right away. Grace said she wanted it to be a surprise. She told her mother, Dawn, the night before prom that she planned on wearing her old wedding gown. Dawn had assumed that Grace would just wear a dress she already owned since she said she already had a dress and didn’t want to go shopping for a new one.

Dawn told Daily Mail that she was “shocked and extremely flattered” when Grace came down in her wedding dress.

She added, “I am biased but I thought she looked the best. She looked unique and her dad David had the biggest smile on his face and was amazed by how good she looked.”

Grace admits that her dress stood out at the dance. Her friends and even teachers were all complimenting her and loved that it was so different. Everyone was shocked that it was actually a wedding dress from the ’90s.

Dawn said she is proud of her daughter for wearing a vintage dress instead of purchasing a new one. “Grace is very wise with money and thinks before she spends — so rather than buying a new prom dress we put the money towards driving lessons instead,” Dawn said.

Watch other teens try on their mother’s wedding dresses. It is so sentimental and sweet. Have you ever tried on your mother’s wedding gown?

One woman was the 11th person in her family to wear the same wedding dress!

The photos are stunning.

DoYouRemember? Nostalgia Lives Here

It is easy to see why singer Lana Del Rey wants to play Priscilla Presley. If you look at photos of Lana next to photos of Priscilla when she was younger, they look almost identical! Reportedly, Lana really wants to break into the acting world and thinks her debut role should be in the new Elvis biopic. Recent news announced that director Baz Luhrmann cast Austin Butler as Elvis Presley in the upcoming film.

Now Baz is looking at potential actresses to portray Priscilla. Lana is making it clear to him and Hollywood that she is very interested in the role. According to Nylon, sources say that “Lana feels it’s a role she was born to play. She’s had her agent badgering Baz for months now, hoping to get her cast.”

She surely looks the part, so why has she not been cast yet? Baz reportedly is nervous about her lack of acting skills. He wants to make sure that every person in the cast is top-notch. If she has never acted before, we can see why he might be nervous about casting her. She would have a lot to learn and it is a huge role for her first acting credit.

The reported continued, “Baz is nervous because she hasn’t exactly proved her acting chops, but it’s her lifelong dream to break onto the big screen. She’s [Lana] been driving her friend [actress] Kristen Stewart crazy, badgering her for method acting tips at every opportunity.” Kristin will be starring in the upcoming remake of Charlie’s Angels.

What do you think? Check out one of Lana Del Rey’s music videos below (Warning: some foul language). She sure has a beautifully haunting voice, but no one really knows what her acting skills may be like. Do you think Lana should be cast as Priscilla or can you think of another actress that would be better suited for the role?

A few months ago, Adam Lambert put it out there that he really wanted to play Elvis in the film.

However, Baz chose Austin Butler for the role. Learn more about Austin here.

Jeff got his own Twitter account

Now, he has his own Twitter account. He said, “I feel like God has given me something of a platform, in a crazy kind of way, to deliver a message about how special a relationship is. I know enough from being divorced and I know where I need to be now in my life. I have 30 or 40 years left, and if I’m lucky, I want to get them right.”

Now, he admits he is being asked out a lot. He is very private about who he is actually talking to, but admits that the whole thing is very unusual but fun! Even his local community saw the tweet. The last time he walked into a restaurant, the whole place applauded. He said he “nearly fell to his knees.”
