PRESIDING OFFICER NICOLELLO PASSES LEGISLATION RAISING AGE TO PURCHASE TOBACCO PRODUCTS

Tobaco 21

During a recent meeting of the Nassau County Legislature, Presiding Officer Richard Nicolello along with members of the County Legislature unanimously voted to prohibit the sale of cigarettes, e-cigarettes, JUUL, vaping equipment, chewing tobacco and other "age restricted" products to individuals under the age of 21.

“Studies show that raising the age to purchase the products from 19 to 21 can have a significant impact in helping prevent addiction and fighting cancer.  Prohibiting children access to dangerous products that are easily abused and can lead to a lifetime of addiction is an important step in helping to protect them.”  said Presiding Officer Nicolello. “Additionally, this legislation will help combat the vaping problem that we see in our schools.”

Retailers who are found to be in violation of this new law will be subject to fines. This bill will bring Nassau in line with Suffolk County and New York City, both who have similar legislation.
