The current age limit to buy tobacco in Oregon is 18, but to match the rules on marijuana, the state has lifted this number to 21.

Oregon has raised its minimum age to buy tobacco and e-cigarettes to 21 so that the regulations are in line with sales of marijuana products.

Governor Kate Brown signed the new law this Wednesday which will take effect on January 1st of next year.

The new law will ban anyone under 21 from buying tobacco products and vaping devices and it makes vendors liable for fines for selling to anyone underage.

Marijuana has been recreationally legal since 2015 for residents aged 21 and older.
