This week the Aspen City council held a first reading on an ordinance that would change the legal age for purchasing tobacco from 18 to 21.

It could also mean a pretty steep potential tax increase on tobacco products in the city.  Reporter Alycin Bektesh has been checking in with those involved in the creation of the ordinance, and speaks with producer  Christin Kay.
