Framingham weighs 21 as age to buy cigarettes – news – natick bulletin and tab – natick, ma

FRAMINGHAM &#x2013 Going after young smokers, the Board of Health is moving to raise the minimum age to buy cigarettes in Framingham from 18 to three member board will consider the change at its meeting Monday, one of several amendments to the town&#x2019 s tobacco regulations that would also cut down the number of tobacco permit holders and limit where e cigarettes are of Health Director Roberto Santamaria said Framingham would be the latest community following a growing trend and stopping selling cigarettes to minors.&#x201c I feel that as the largest community in MetroWest, it really makes a statement that we&#x2019 re going to tobacco 21 and we&#x2019 re really hoping that the region goes through too,&#x201d he said. &#x201c We&#x2019 re all really excited about this. It&#x2019 s a big step.&#x201d Santamaria said Ashland and other cities and towns have changed their regulations from 18 to 21, with Natick also taking up the of Health Chairman Mike Hugo said the town&#x2019 s changes would gradually drop the number of tobacco permits in Framingham from 76 to a more manageable 60.&#x201c Sixty&#x2019 s about right for the size town that we have, and it&#x2019 s a little easier to enforce 60 than 76,&#x201d he town would start to take back licenses that are forfeited if a business closes or if if is penalized for a tobacco control violation, he said the Southside is saturated with tobacco changes would also allow electronic or e cigarettes to be sold only to customers 21 and older at tobacco or vapor product retailers, not other shops with tobacco regulations also affirm that Framingham bans the sale of flavored tobacco that is now prohibited by federal regulators, Hugo changes would also apply to the sale of cigars, Hugo said.&#x201c If you&#x2019 re selling a cigar and you&#x2019 re not a retail tobacco store like Watch City, than you can only sell cigars that are $2.50 and up, so no cheap cigars that are flavored,&#x201d he said the idea behind the age restriction of 21 is to make the schools tobacco free, since students have the right to attend public school up until their 21st birthday.&#x201c It gets this out of the hands of the youth which is where people usually get addicted,&#x201d Santamaria Board of Health meets at 7 p.m. Monday in the Memorial Building.&#xa0 Danielle Ameden can be reached at 508 626 4416 or dameden Follow her on Twitter damedenMW.
