CLEVELAND – The law forbidding Cleveland tobacco sales to people younger than 21 years old goes into effect on Thursday.
In December 2015, Cleveland City Council passed a measure prohibiting the selling, giving or distribution of cigarettes and other tobacco products to anyone who is younger than 21 . Prior to the law, the legal age was 18.
On April 12, retailers are supposed to start asking for proof of age from customers who look like they may be under the age of 30.
