In case you missed it, last year Maine raised the legal smoking age (and the ability to purchase tobacco products) to 21.  Get ready, because that law goes into effect very soon.  Let's take a look...

Starting July 1st (2018), you must be 21 years old to purchase tobacco products in the state of Maine.  The ONLY exception to this law is IF you turn 18 before July 1, 2018.

According to Tobacco Free Kids, Maine isn't the only state that increased its age on smoking.  Maine joins California, New Jersey, Oregon and Hawaii.
