Currently there are a few bills that have been submitted across the United States to increase the vaping age limit to 21 years of age.
Iowa lawmakers have put together a proposal to increase the vaping age restriction from 18 to 21 years of age, while not including other tobacco products into this proposal. This is a strange proposal as it allows the use of cigarettes and similar tobacco products to adults by the age of 18, but will change vaping products to the age of 21. This is a directed attack on vaping as a safer alternative to cigarettes in Iowa.
Dover, New Hampshire
Dover is again pushing for a bill to raise the tobacco use(including vaping products) age from 18 to 21.
New Mexico lawmakers had previously tried to pass SB 72 which was declared dead and now they’re back with their bill which is being reintroduced as H.B. 261 with the proposal to increase the wholesale tax from 25% to 76% of the wholesale price. A huge increase in taxes. If this bill is passed, the bill will be effective July 1, 2019. They are also trying to pass H.B. 259 which would raise the minimum age requirement. As well as H.B. 260 which is an attempt to ban the sales of flavored tobacco products.
Minnesota is attempting to raise the minimum age requirement from 18 years old to 21 years old.
San Carlos, California
San Carlos City Council wants to ban flavored vape liquids. California already has an age minimum of 21 years old and now they’re trying to ban flavored vape liquids under the guise of helping kids.
Illinois is another state trying to raise the minimum age requirement from 18 to 21 years of age.
Bill HB 1432 is being proposed to increase the age minimum restriction from 18 to 21 years of age.
