Connecticut lawmakers have started planning to curb the upward trend of teen vaping. Potential bills include T21, levying a new tax, banning e-cigarette flavors. and increasing regulation of internet sales and shipments of e-cigs.
BREAKING: New York Governor Andrew Cuomo today announced that a proposal to raise the minimum sales age for tobacco and electronic cigarette products from 18 to 21 will be included in the 2019 executive budget as part of comprehensive legislation to address the teen vaping epidemic, curb youth tobacco use and remove sources of tobacco and nicotine products from high schools.
"We have made great strides to stamp out teen smoking, but new products threaten to undo this progress to the detriment of millions of Americans. In New York, we refuse to stand idly by while unscrupulous businesses target our young people and put their very futures at risk," Governor Cuomo said.
The legislation contains multiple tobacco control provisions and would provide the Department of Health the authority to ban the sale of flavored e-cigarette liquids that target youth.
Raising the age for legal products and throwing in pot to add to the drug problem. Brilliant! I guess we will have to name a bridge after him.
But legalize marijuana? WT F ?
This is supposed to be America land of the free but why are we not free to make bad decisions and smoke tobacco products. This is bullshit You can die for this country at 18 but you can't have a cigaret or a vape, They should also lower the drinking age back down to 18
But weed is OK age 12............................
