Iowa Introduces Legislation To Raise Tobacco Age To 21

You can add Iowa to the list of states that wants tor raise the minimum tobacco purchase age from 18 to 21-years-old. The new measure was introduced last week by Senator Herman C. Quirmbach, a Democrat from the 23rd district of Iowa.

The measure which was introduced by Quirmbach is SF 2016  and prohibits the sale of tobacco products to those under 21. In addition to it being illegal for retailers to sell to those under 21, the bill would make it illegal for those under 21 to posses or attempt to purchase tobacco products.

If the measure is passed it would go into effect on January 1, 2017.
