Washington state raises smoking age to 21
OLYMPIA, Wash. — Washington Gov. Jay Inslee has signed a bill raising the state's smoking age to 21, making it the ninth state in the nation to enact such a change. Set to take effect in 2020, the bill signed by Inslee Friday raises the legal age for both tobacco products and so-called "vape" products, including e-cigarettes and other vapor devices, whether they include tobacco or not.
