Eliminating confusion about legal tobacco sales

The age limit of 21 or older for tobacco sales nationwide is creating some confusion in Door and Kewaunee counties. That's because the legal age in Wisconsin remains 18 pending a change by the state legislature.  So tobacco opponents are working to help local store owners and their employees take a consistent stand on tobacco sales.  Cath Tease with re:Think-The Lakeshore Tobacco Prevention Network says when in doubt card customers and go with the federal standards.




The legal age to buy tobacco and vaping products went up to 21 at the beginning of 2020.  Wisconsin and 31 other states are among those who have yet to change the legal age from 18.
