View Article

The Illinois House has voted to bar tobacco sales to those under age 21 a day after the legislation fell four votes short. Chicago Democratic Rep. Camille Lilly’s plan would prohibit sales of tobacco products to minors. The ban would include e-cigarettes and vaping materials. It was approved 61-49 and goes to the governor for action. Lilly says it would reduce teen addiction and saves the state millions of dollars in long-term health care costs.
