Naperville Stores Must Raise Tobacco Sale Age to 21

www.lungchicago.org
Stores in Naperville no longer will be allowed to sell tobacco products to anyone younger than 21 beginning Jan. 1.

The prohibition will extend to alternative nicotine products such as e-cigarettes as of Jan. 1, 2018, after the city council voted to increase the age restrictions in an effort to protect young people's health.

The move reduces the likelihood cigarettes will make their way into high schools through teens' social networks, advocates said.
