(HARTFORD, CT) – Governor Ned Lamont, Lt. Governor Susan Bysiewicz, and
Department of Public Health Commissioner Renée D. Coleman-Mitchell are
applauding the State Senate for voting to give final approval to
legislation today that will prohibit the sale of cigarettes, tobacco
products, electronic delivery systems, and vapor products to persons
under the age of 21. The legislation was approved in the House of
Representatives on May 16 and will next be transmitted to the governor’s
When Governor Lamont signs the bill in the coming days, Connecticut will
become the 14th state to raise the age to purchase tobacco products to
Governor Lamont said, “When our laws surrounding tobacco products were
written several decades ago, the medical evidence about the impact of
the substance did not exist. With the rising use of e-cigarettes and
vaping products among young people, we are seeing a growing public
health crisis. Some have pointed out that raising the age to 21 will
result in a net revenue loss to the state, but when it comes to the
health of our young people we need to do what is right. I applaud the
bipartisan members from each chamber of our state legislature for voting
to raise the age. When I sign this into law, we will have taken an
important step forward in protecting the health of the youngest members
of our communities.”
Lt. Governor Bysiewicz said, “Adolescent brains are particularly
vulnerable to damage from nicotine addiction. We all know that smoking
leads to various tobacco-related illnesses including lung disease, heart
disease, and cancer. Considering that nearly nine out of ten smokers
start by the time they turn 18, this legislation will help reduce levels
of nicotine dependence and over time, decrease the number of tobacco
related deaths across our state.”
Commissioner Coleman-Mitchell said, “This is a major step forward for
public health in Connecticut. Increasing the age for the sale of tobacco
products to 21 is an evidence-based strategy endorsed by many national
health and medical organizations, Centers for Disease Control and
Prevention, as another effort to help reduce youth tobacco use, which
has been increasing at an alarming rate. Nicotine is easier than ever
to ingest for our young people, with the growing popularity of vaping.
It has been shown to have adverse health impacts including on brain
development. States that have raised the legal age to purchase tobacco
products have seen decreased usage among 18 to 21-year-olds. We are
excited to see these positive results going forward in our state.”
The legislation is House Bill 7200,
An Act Prohibiting the Sale of Cigarettes, Tobacco Products, Electronic
Nicotine Delivery Systems and Vapor Products to Persons Under the Age
