OR is now on pace to become the fourth state to ban tobacco and cigarettes sales to anyone under 21 after Gov. Kate Brown signed a bill Wednesday hiking the legal smoking age up from 18. The new law goes into effect on January 1, according to The Associated Press. OR is one of five states to boost the age to 21, joining California, Hawaii, Maine and New Jersey. Hawaii was the first state to enact a T21 law, which went into effect on January 1, 2016, followed by California six months later.
