Tobacco: US acts to stem youth vape crisis

06 Jan 2020 - Alcohol & Tobacco

The US Congress has voted to raise the minimum age to buy tobacco and e-cigarettes from 18 to 21 to stem the rising tide of youth vaping. Passed by the Senate as part of a wider budgetary bill, it will take effect next year and mean that tobacco and e-cigarettes will join alcohol as substances prohibited from purchase by those under the age of 21.
