Arkansas Tobacco Purchasing Age Increase Fails

Null

A proposal to raise the minimum age to purchase tobacco products in the state of Arkansas has failed.

Last week, H.B. 1711 was read for the third time in the Arkansas House of Representatives and failed. If passed, the bill would have made it illegal for any person under the age of 21 to purchase or possess tobacco products, including e-cigarettes and vapor products.

California and Hawaii are the only two states that have passed laws requiring individuals to be 21 to purchase tobacco though a variety of states have active bills that would raise the minimum age to purchase tobacco.
