Governor Northam has signed a bill into law that will prohibit anyone under the age of 21 from purchasing tobacco products, including e-cigarettes. Although ACS CAN applauds our state legislators for their desire to prevent kids from using tobacco, we did not support this legislation.
Both Senate Finance and House Economic Matters Committees pass Tobacco 21
Thank you to all of our advocates who have been taking action on the “Tobacco 21” bill. Your voices have been heard and I have more great news to share. Both the Senate Finance Committee and the House Economic Matters committees passed the bill out of their committees. Tobacco 21 bill is now going to Senate and House Floors to be voted on by all state legislators! We need help now to move the bill forward.
