The Portland City Council gave unanimous approval on Monday night to a new proposal by the Health and Human Services Committee that will raise the minimum age for the purchase of tobacco products from 18 to 21 years of age.
"We applaud this move by the Portland City Council," said Tara Hill, Executive Director of Maine Cancer Foundation. "Maine has one of the highest rates of lung cancer death in the country, and tobacco use accounts for nearly half of all cancer deaths in our state. We share a deep commitment to reducing tobacco use in our state, especially among young people."
