Oregon has joined California, Hawaii, Maine, and New Jersey in raising the minimum age limit for purchasing tobacco and related products to 21:

Oregon is raising the minimum age for buying tobacco and e-cigarettes in the state to 21, bringing its regulations into line with sales of marijuana products.

The new law, signed by Governor Kate Brown on Wednesday and taking effect on Jan. 1, bans under-21s from buying tobacco products and vaping devices, and makes vendors liable for fines for under-age sales.

The current age limit in the state is 18.

    I'm not sure it's dumb. It kind of makes sense that you should be licensed in dispensing the carcinogenic explosive liquid.

    ...Then again, I spent a good chunk of my life in new jersey, the only other state where you aren't allowed to pump your own gas.

    So... do you have to pay some licensed person to come to your house to gas up your lawn mower, too?
