Bill Raising Sales Age for Tobacco, E-Cigarette Products to 21 Moves Forward


Wisconsin lawmakers are moving ahead with a bill that would limit the sale of vaping and other tobacco products to people over the age of 21. The Assembly’s committee on substance abuse and prevention held a hearing on the proposal on Wednesday.


The measure would increase the minimum age for buying products containing nicotine and tobacco from 18 to 21, and would prohibit anyone from selling or providing vaping materials, such as vape pens, to anyone under 21. Supporters of the bill say it would help slow the growth in popularity of e-cigarettes among young people. Use of e-cigarettes and vaping devices by high schoolers is increasing, despite concerns about damage the chemicals in those devices may cause to the heart and lungs.


The bill would need to pass the senate and assembly and be signed by Governor Tony Evers before becoming law.
