ANNAPOLIS (WJZ) — You will soon have to be 21 to buy tobacco products in Maryland.

Monday, Gov. Larry Hogan signed a bill that raised the age from 18 to 21.

The use of tobacco products has recently skyrocketed among teenagers- including vaping and e-cigarettes.

The bill goes into effect this October and will apply to all types of tobacco products.

It currently exempts members of the military.
