United States raises age for buying tobacco products

Dec 28, 2019 16:53 IST


The United States has officially raised the federal legal age for buying tobacco products from 18 to 21. The move comes after US President Donald Trump signed a legislation to amend the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act and the law includes cigarettes, cigars and e-cigarettes. The new age for buying these products has already been implemented in a few states and cities across the country. The move comes in the wake of rising numbers of youth vaping and vaping-related illnesses.
