The Board of Health voted last Thursday to raise the tobacco buying age from 18, and also expanded regulations to include e-cigarettes, not allowing permits to be renewed if there are outstanding fines, and insisting that cigars be sold in packs of four or at a minimum price of $2.50 each. Health director Sigalle Reiss said there was some opposition to the changes, but board members felt they were important to the health of residents. “For me, it was huge deal and this is why I got into local public health,” Reiss said in a phone interview.
