State Lawmakers Want to Raise the Age for Tobacco Purchases

Legislation to raise the legal purchasing age of tobacco and electronic cigarette products from 18 to 21 passed the Illinois Senate Wednesday by a vote of 32-22-2. The bill fell five votes shy of passage last Thursday, but Sen. John Mulroe, D-Chicago, the bill’s sponsor, was able to get a second vote.
