This first-in-the-nation TFG law disallows the sale of tobacco products to anyone born this century.

Congratulations to the City of Brookline for standing up to Big Tobacco, and to the team from the Public Health Advocacy Institute at Northeastern University School of Law who fought this case pro bono.
