Illinois Is Now A “Tobacco 21” State, Here’s How The Law Is Different

Illinois is now the nation’s seventeenth “Tobacco 21” state, and while the law seems straightforward, it contains some unexpected nuances.

The law specifically prohibits the sale of any tobacco, vaping, or liquid nicotine product to anyone younger than 21 in the state of Illinois.

Bloomington Police spokesman John Fermon said his department has been publicizing plans for compliance checks on local businesses to make sure those businesses are abiding by the new law.

“We wanted to make sure that retailers were aware of the change and had time to prepare,” Fermon said.
