As of Monday, people under 21 years old can no longer buy tobacco products in San Antonio. That includes cigarettes, cigars, hookah, chewing tobacco, and electronic smoking products. San Antonio is the first city in Texas to implement it.
People between the ages of 18 and 20 will not be able to buy tobacco in San Antonio, starting Oct. 1 after a 9 to 2 vote by City Council Thursday. District 6 Councilman Greg Brockhouse and District 10 Clayton Perry were the two dissenting votes.
