Tobacco Control Regulation Changes

On November 25, 2019 the Boston Board of Health adopted amendments to Boston's tobacco control regulations. These amendments include provisions to include mint, menthol, and wintergreen flavored tobacco and nicotine products to the existing flavored tobacco sales restrictions as well as expand identification checking to customers of all ages.

These amendments are effective immediately with the exception of restrictions on the sale of mint, menthol, and wintergreen tobacco products, which will take effect on June 1, 2020.

You can view the original presentation to the Board from September here and the final presentation from November here. Additional Board of Health Meeting materials are available here
