There will once again be a proposal to raise the minimum age to purchase tobacco from 18 to 21.

Sen. David Watters, D-Dover, who co-sponsored a similar bill last year, said that he will once again introduce a bill to raise the minimum age from 18 to 21.

New Hampshire is one of three states, along with the District of Columbia, that have no taxes on cigars. It’s also home to one notable mail-order retailer, Two Guys Smoke Shop. What’s not clear is whether the bill would require all mail-order customers purchasing from Two Guys to also be 21.

CaliforniaHawaiiMaineMassachusettsNew Jersey and Oregon have all raised the minimum age to purchase tobacco and tobacco alternatives to 21-years-old.
