Nassau County, New York is considering increasing the sales age of all tobacco products to 21. Karen Bloomenfeld, along with other anti-tobacco advocates, medical professionals, and legislators, testified in support of raising the age. Arnold Drucker, a county commissioner in Nassau, stated that the law should be, “equal and level all over Nassau County”.  We couldn’t agree more and look forward to welcoming Nassau County into the 225+ localities that have raised the age.

"Finish it!" with immediate steeply higher tobacco taxes plus T21. Teenagers and twentysomethings on an allowance or in entry level jobs are easily priced out of the tobacco market and by the time their incomes increase later they are past the age when 90% of nicotine addicts start smoking. This will create a tobacco-free generation.
