The bill would include all tobacco products, including vape pens
Republican lawmakers in Nevada have introduced a last-minute bill that would raise the minimum age from 18 to 21 for purchasing tobacco.
The bill — Assembly Bill 544 — would include all tobacco products, including vape pens and related components. There’s one exception: active-duty members of the military can continue buying tobacco products at age 18 or older.
The bill was presented to the Assembly Committee on Taxation this evening by Assembly Minority Leader Jim Wheeler, R-Minden, who said that he did want others picking up the tobacco habit he’s had for decades.
“I’m 65 years old and I smoke. I started when I was 14. I don’t want my kids doing it. I don’t want their kids doing it,” Wheeler said. “It’s got to stop.”
