The Guthrie city council amended an ordinance on Tuesday evening raising the minimum age to purchase or posse tobacco products from 18 to 21. The council approved the agenda item with a 5-2 vote.
The amendment now matches the state statue.
The topic is discussed at the 19:15 mark in the video above.
In May, Gov. Kevin Stitt signed Senate Bill 1423 into law, which prohibits the sale of cigarettes, e-cigarettes, cigars and any other tobacco products to anybody who is not at least 21 years old.
In December, Congress passed legislation that prohibited the sale of cigarettes, e-cigarettes, cigars, and other tobacco products to anyone under the age of 21. Ultimately, President Donald Trump signed the Tobacco-Free Youth Act.
The local ordinance goes into effect immediately.
Council members James Long, Sharyl Padgett, Jeff Taylor, Don Channel and Mayor Steve Gentling voted yes, while councilman Brian Bothroyd and Jim Case against the admendment.
