Download: Tobacco 21 Ordinance (PDF)
The Tobacco 21 ordinance takes effect on October 1, 2018, to increase the age for sale of tobacco products from 18 years of age to 21 years of age. This includes tobacco products whether smoked, heated, chewed, absorbed, dissolved, inhaled or ingested by any other means, including, but not limited to a cigarette, e-cigarettes, a cigar, pipe tobacco, chewing tobacco, snuff, snus, or an electronic smoking device or liquids used in electronic smoking devices. This public health measure will delay the age of first tobacco use, reduce the risk of youth becoming regular smokers, and help keep tobacco out of schools. If you have any questions, call (210) 207-8730 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
