Wellesley, Mass. Raises Tobacco Purchase Age to 21

Null

The Wellesley, Mass. Board of Health recently amended its regulation on the sale of tobacco and nicotine products to increase the minimum age to purchase both tobacco and nicotine delivery products from from 18 to 21. The town joins more than a dozen municipalities in the state who have raised the age to purchase tobacco from 18 to either 19 or 21, and becomes part of a growing movement across the country to increase the age to purchase tobacco products.

The amendment was voted on and passed on February 20 and will go into effect on June 1. It includes e-cigarettes as well under the title of nicotine delivery products, despite the fact they contain no tobacco.

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.
