The New Mexico Tobacco Regulation Act (Senate Bill 131) was signed into law on Wed. March 4, according to a story in dailylobo.com.
The new law requires manufacturers, distributors and sellers of tobacco products — including e-cigarettes — to be licensed in New Mexico and to be subject to criminal penalties if they manufacture, distribute or sell tobacco products in the state without a license.
It also raised the legal age for purchases of e-cigarettes and other tobacco products from 18 to 21, aligning New Mexico law with recently passed federal law.
