More smoking restrictions in NYC

Jump to last reply

Although the city's efforts to reduce smoking have had a significant impact there are still a lot of people smoking, especially young people. To help prevent this the city is about to pass a law preventing sale of cigarettes to anyone under 21, versus the current 18. This will include both regular and electronic ones. If they will amp up enforcement I don't know. (Larger retailers are very strict but local stores often are not.)

Also, retailers will not be allowed to offer discounts or coupons in any form on cigarettes.

One can only hope it will prevent more young people from being hooked.
