In an effort to reduce youth smoking rates across the state, The Massachusetts House of Representatives passed a bill this week that increases the legal smoking age across the state to 21 years of age and implements new provision that regulate the sale of e-cigarettes. The legislature also enforces child-resistant packaging and strengthens the regulations around smoking in public areas, particularly schools. The legislation goes into effect on December 31 and includes a grandfather clause for those individuals who turn 18 before January 1, 2017. State Representative Linda Dean Campbell, who joined her colleagues in this effort, said “This is a commonsense piece of legislation that takes what we have learned about the life long impacts of teenage smoking through decades of research and implements preventative measures to reduce associated life-threatening risks.”

This legislation is part of a national campaign known as “Tobacco 21” operated by a public health nonprofit organization known as the Preventing Tobacco Addiction Foundation.
