The Senate included an exception in its bill intended for members of the military. Individuals 18 to 20 could still purchase tobacco products if they show a military identification, under the Senate version.
The House of Delegates considered the same exception but declined to put it in its version of the bill.
The Senate version passed by a vote of 35-11. The House version passed 100-39.
The two chambers will have to either agree to one version or the other, or they will work out the differences in a conference committee before sending the bill to Gov. Larry Hogan for his consideration.
