New Jersey Raises the Smoking Age

New Jersey has now made it illegal to sell cigarettes to anyone under the age of 21.  Think about that.  You can't smoke or drink in the Garden State until you're 21.  The New Jersey legislature also passed a bill that would have barred anyone under the age of 18 from getting married (even with parental permission.)  That bill was vetoed by governor Christie.  On the other hand, if you are 14 and want an abortion, you can get one in New Jersey without even telling your parents.  Why is it that someone is old enough for one but not for the other?  Which is a more important decision:  1) to smoke or not or 2) to have an abortion? 

If someone can explain this with a reason other than that the left wants no restrictions of any sort on abortion, please let me know.  I'm curious to hear the logic.
