PHILADELPHIA (WPVI) -- Delaware is closer to raising the smoking age from 18 to 21.
The Senate approved a bill Tuesday and sent it to the state House.
It already has Governor John Carney's support.
The legislation would raise the legal age to buy tobacco, e-cigarettes and vaping devices.
It would eliminate punishments for minors who try to buy tobacco but slap criminal fines up to $1,000 on stores selling to minors and civil penalties for selling to people aged 18 to 21.
