Sales Age

Does the law establish a minimum age for the purchase of tobacco products?

Yes
Minimum Age: 18
Analysis

The law prohibits the sale of tobacco products to "minors". "Minor" is not defined in the Tobacco Control Law, however we interpret it to mean anyone under the age of 18.

The law meets FCTC Art. 16 in that it prohibits the sale of tobacco products to minors.
