Information on the new Law in Massachusetts

A new tobacco law in Massachusetts is now in place and it affects where tobacco and vaping products can be sold.  These changes are designed to reduce the youth vaping epidemic in Massachusetts and stop tobacco companies from targeting and addicting young people.  The tobacco and vaping industries have long targeted youth, LGBTQ populations and communities of color, resulting in terrible health consequences for the public.

Here’s a simple summary of how the law will change where and what tobacco and vaping products can be sold.

  • The new law substantially restricts where e-cigarette and nicotine vaping products and flavored tobacco products can be purchased.
  • Now all flavored e-cigarettes and nicotine vaping products can only be purchased for on-site consumption at licensed adult-only smoking bars in Massachusetts.
  • Non-flavored nicotine products with a nicotine content of 35 milligrams per milliliter or less can continue to be purchased at stores licensed to sell tobacco products like convenience stores, gas stations, liquor stores and bodegas.
  • Non-flavored nicotine products with over 35 milligrams per milliliter of nicotine content can only be purchased at licensed, adult-only retail tobacco stores and smoking bars.
  • Beginning on June 1, 2020, menthol cigarettes and other flavored tobacco products like cigars and flavored chewing tobacco can only be purchased for on-site consumption at licensed, adult-only smoking bars.
  • Also on June 1, 2020, the price of e-cigarettes and nicotine vaping products will increase because of the addition of a 75% excise tax on the wholesale price.

The new law substantially restricts the sale of flavored tobacco and nicotine products to protect youth since flavors, including mint and menthol, are a leading reason they start using them.  Local Boards of Health have the authority to assure that the new law is being followed by retailers in their communities.   For more information, visit

Contact Edgar Duran Elmudesi at the Metro Boston Tobacco-Free Community Partnership, or 617-451-0049 x549 to learn more about how this new law will protect youth from tobacco addiction and fight the tobacco industry’s targeting of youth, LGBTQ and communities of color with vaping products and menthol cigarettes.

Help for those who want to quit vaping, smoking or using other tobacco products is available at 1-800-QUIT-NOW (1-800-784-8669) and  Organizations that want to support people in quitting can contact Edgar Duran Elmudesi for information and guidance on simple strategies they can implement.

“I liked it so much I wanted to set up a day-care in the lobby. As I said, the best show in town.” —Chicago Tribune

“takes audiences on an emotional roller-coaster ride that whipsaws through laughs, poignant tears and moments of monumental rage” —LEO Weekly

Jessie is feeling trapped and alone on maternity leave in her new Long Island duplex. Starved for adult conversation, she invites the funny and forthright Lina for coffee in their neighboring backyards. They become fast friends, quickly bonding over their shared “new mom” experience despite the financial gulf between them—while someone watches from the mansion on the cliff overlooking Jessie’s yard. This insightful comedy with dark edges takes an honest look at the absurdities of new motherhood, the dilemma of returning to work, and how class impacts parenthood and friendship in America.

Tickets are $30, $25 seniors, $15 students

Tickets can be purchased by calling (617) 887-2336 or on-line at Information and directions at Performances will be followed by a reception with the actors.
