Lawmakers Consider Raising Tobacco Possession Age

MetroSourceFebruary 20, 2020

Kansas could soon raise the minimum age to buy or possess tobacco and vaping products.

The Kansas House of Representatives is considering a bill that would raise the minimum age to purchase and possess cigarettes, other tobacco products and e-cigarettes from 18-years-old to 21-years-old.

The bill would also ban flavored vaping products other than menthol as well as cigarette vending machines.

The measure, if approved, would bring Kansas in line with a new federal law.
