Walmart raises tobacco age limit to 21

News

Starting today, you have to be 21 or older to purchase tobacco products from Walmart or Sam’s Club. Back in May, Walmart announced that stores nationwide would be raising the minimum age to purchase tobacco products and e-cigarettes.

Walmart is also in the process of ending the sale of fruit and dessert-flavored e-cigarettes, which critics say can get teenagers hooked on vaping.
