Some Indiana retailers are unaware of tobacco age change

Local News

(AP)- The legal age to buy tobacco products is now 21, but some Indiana retailers say they are unaware of the change.

The Indianapolis Star reports that President Donald Trump signed off on a spending package last month that changes the age from 18 to 21, and it went into effect immediately.

The age minimum applies to all tobacco products, which includes cigarettes, e-cigarettes, vaping cartridges, cigars and hookah tobacco.
