In December 2019, federal legislation was passed to raise the minimum age of purchase for all tobacco products, including e-vapor, to 21.
“Moving the legal age of purchase for all tobacco products to 21 is the most important step to addressing the youth vaping crisis. This landmark legislation will protect youth by preventing social access, while also protecting the enormous harm reduction potential of e-vapor products for millions of adult smokers 21 and older. We appreciate the leadership of bipartisan lawmakers who seized this opportunity and passed this legislation.”
