Louisiana Bill Would Raise Minimum Tobacco Purchasing Age to 21

Null

A bill has been introduced in Lousiana that would raise the minimum age to purchase tobacco in Louisiana from 18 to 21.

Rep. Frank Hoffman, R-15, has introduced H.B. 38 which would simply change the existing law regulating tobacco purchases from 18 to 21.

Currently, six states require those purchasing tobacco to be 21: Hawaii, California, Oregon, New Jersey, Maine, Massachusetts. Later this year, Virginia will increase its minimum age to 21.
