Newmarket, N.H. Increases Tobacco Purchasing Age to 21

Null

The town of Newmarket, N.H. is the latest to join the Tobacco 21 movement, passing an ordinance this week that makes it illegal for a person under 21-years-old to purchase, possess or use tobacco products or e-cigarettes.

The proposal passed by a 5-2 vote during the council’s meeting on Wednesday, and is slated to go into effect 30 days following its passage and publication..

Currently, Keene and Dover are the only two cities to enact such an increase, both passing them in 2018. New Hampshire is one of roughly 20 states considering proposals that would increase the statewide age to purchase tobacco products to 21-years-old.

Newmarket is home to approximately 9,000 residents and is located in the southeastern corner of the state, roughly 60 miles north of Boston.

About the author

I strive to capture the essence of a cigar and the people behind them in my work – every cigar you light up is the culmination of the work of countless people and often represents generations of struggle and stories. For me, it’s about so much more than the cigar – it’s about the story behind it, the experience of enjoying the work of artisans and the way that a good cigar can bring people together. In addition to my work with halfwheel, I’m the public address announcer for the Colorado Rockies and Arizona Diamondbacks during spring training, as well as for the Salt River Rafters of the Arizona Fall League, the WNBA's Phoenix Mercury and the Arizona Rattlers of the Indoor Football League. I also work in a number of roles for MLB.com, plus I'm a voice over artist. I previously covered the Phoenix and national cigar scene for Examiner.com, and was an editor for Cigar Snob magazine.
