Start­ing in Septem­ber, Wal­greens will re­strict the sale of to­bacco prod­ucts to adults age 21 or older after pres­sure from law­mak­ers and the Food & Drug Ad­min­is­tra­tion. State law­mak­ers are weigh­ing whether to raise the le­gal age for pur­chas­ing to­bacco to 21 from 18. Mil­ford passed a sim­i­lar or­di­nance this month, join­ing a num­ber of mu­nic­i­pal­i­ties and states. Wal­greens has im­ple­mented a “card all” pol­icy for to­bacco pur­chases re­quir­ing to­bacco buy­ers to pro­duce iden­ti­fi­ca­tion.
