07 Jan FDA raises federal minimum age of sale of tobacco products from 18 to 21 years
On December 20, 2019, the President signed legislation to amend the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act, and raise the federal minimum age of sale of tobacco products from 18 to 21 years. It is now illegal for a retailer to sell any tobacco product – including cigarettes, cigars and e-cigarettes – to anyone under 21. Now the FDA is requiring ID checks for all purchasers under age 30. On November 13th 2019 New York already passed legislation to raise the minimum age to 21 or older to purchase tobacco.
