Boston Raises Tobacco-Buying Age to 21

The new rules now require people to be 21 in order to buy tobacco products, e-cigarettes and in order to enter “smoking bars” and adult-only retail tobacco stores.

The city’s Board of Health voted this week to increase the legal age to buy smoking products to 21, a move the administration said adds Boston to the list of more than 85 other communities across the state.

According to the administration, the new rules now require people to be 21 in order to buy tobacco products, e-cigarettes and in order to enter “smoking bars” and adult-only retail tobacco stores. The rules also limit the sale of flavored tobacco and nicotine products other than menthol to adult-only retailers.
