During the 2019 Virginia General Assembly Session, lawmakers voted to increase the minimum age to purchase tobacco, nicotine vapor and alternative nicotine products from 18 to 21 years old.

The new law allows active duty military aged 18 or older with a valid military ID to purchase nicotine products.
