NASSAU COUNTY RAISES AGE TO PURCHASE CIGARETTES AND OTHER TOBACCO PRODUCTS TO 21

During a recent meeting of the Nassau County Legislature, Alternate Deputy Presiding Officer Denise Ford 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.

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.
