In December 2019, the President signed legislation raising the federal minimum age for sale of tobacco products from 18 to 21 years. Effective immediately, this law makes it illegal for a retailer to sell any tobacco product—including cigarettes, cigars, and e-cigarettes—to anyone under 21. FDA has developed a webpage to provide the latest information on this new legislation—commonly referred to as “Tobacco 21” or “T21”. The webpage currently houses responses to commonly asked questions, a recently released webinar, CTP’s web statement on the new legislation, as well as information on resources for retailers to help verify the age of customers.Learn More
