Can I buy cigarettes at age 19 in America?

Hello! I turned 18 before the new 21 law was put in place, can I still not buy cigarettes?

Thank you!

    In the US you must be 21 to buy tobacco products. What the law used to be has no effect on the current law.

    Not legally. There is no 'grandfathering' clause for those under 21 for whom it was legal before the new law took effect.
