Walgreens up tobacco age to 21
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.
