Tobacco 21 Goes Statewide

It started right here in MetroWest in 2005, when the Needham Board of Health approved a local ordinance making 21 the minimum age for the purchase of tobacco products. Supported by data from our MetroWest Adolescent Health Survey, that single act turned into a national movement to raise the age to 21. Over 330 cities and counties across the US, including 175 here in Massachusetts, soon followed suit. 

Today, Massachusetts becomes the sixth state to adopt Tobacco 21 statewide. In addition to the age change, the new law enacted by the Massachusetts Legislature and signed by Governor Baker also prohibits pharmacies from selling tobacco products and adds e-cigarettes to the state's smoke-free law.
