(CNN) — A new law sets the minimum age to buy tobacco products at 21 years old.
President Donald Trump signed the measure into law Friday.
It’s part of the $1.4 trillion spending agreement to fund the federal government.
A bipartisan group of senators have wanted the measure for some time.
They finally got it pushed through by attaching it to a bill that had to pass to avoid a government shutdown.
The measure applies to traditional tobacco products like cigarettes and vaping devices.
President Trump supports the change.
Several states had already raised their ages for purchasing tobacco — but the measure now mandates it nationwide.
