Iowa Gov. Reynolds Signs Bill To Raise Tobacco Usage Age

The release states that there are no exemptions or grandfather clauses

Governor Kim Reynolds signed a bill into law that raises the legal age to purchase tobacco products, including vaping products, to 21.

The bill was passed by the Iowa Senate in March, but due to COVID-19, the Iowa House was delayed from taking up the bill until June.

“This law brings Iowa into alignment with the federal Tobacco 21 bill, which was signed into law in December 2019,” said Iowa Department of Public Health Tobacco Use Prevention and Control Division Director Jerilyn Oshel.

The release states that there are no exemptions or grandfather clauses to the Iowa or federal law.
