Maine Becomes Fourth State to Raise Tobacco Age to 21

2017-08-02

Maine today became the fourth state to prohibit the sale of tobacco products to anyone under 21 as the Legislature voted to override Gov. Paul LePage’s veto of the measure. In taking this bold step, Maine will prevent young people from starting to use tobacco, save lives and help make the next generation tobacco-free. We applaud Maine lawmakers for standing up to the tobacco industry and acting to protect the children and health of their state. The law covers all tobacco products, including e-cigarettes, and prohibits tobacco sales to anyone under 21 as lawmakers rejected proposals to exempt members of the military. Maine provides another significant boost for the growing, nationwide movement to increase the tobacco age to 21. Tobacco 21 laws have also been enacted by California, Hawaii, New Jersey and at least...
