The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has officially changed the federal minimum age to purchase tobacco from 18 to 21.

The new minimum age applies to all tobacco products, including e-cigarettes and vaping cartridges, and comes after President Trump last week signed a $1.4 trillion spending package that included raising the tobacco buying age from 18 to 21.

The FDA had six months to amend their policies after President Trump signed the bill into law. However, an update on the FDA site states that the change is now in effect. “It is now illegal for a retailer to sell any tobacco product – including cigarettes, cigars and e-cigarettes – to anyone under 21,” the website says.

Wild Bill’s will play a direct role in protecting kids from nicotine addiction by complying with these regulations, which will help keep tobacco products out of the hands of the youth.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
