town prohibiting tobacco sales to customers under 21
  • The town's board of health unanimously adopted an ordinance Monday night banning
    tobacco sales to a broader population Cheapest Cigarettes In The World, making
    Princeton the seventh town in New Jersey to enact such a law. "The real impact
    of increasing the tobacco age of sale is putting the legal purchase outside of
    the social circle of those who initiate," board member George DiFerdinando said.
    "It has minimal impact on those who are currently smoking." Princeton joins
    Bogota, Englewood, Garfield, Highland Park, Sayreville and Teaneck in adopting
    an ordinance that requires customers to be a bit older than the state age
    requirement of 19 to purchase tobacco products, according to Global Advisors on
    Smokefree Policy. The law, which Princeton's Department of Health will be in
    charge of enforcing, will go into effect within three weeks. There are about 20
    locations in Princeton where cigarettes are sold and even more where tobacco
    products such as electronic cigarettes can be purchased. Retailers who violate
    the law will face a penalty of $250 for the first offense, $500 for the second
    and $1,000 for the third and subsequent violations. Eric Blomgren Newport Cigarettes Official Website,
    associate director of government affairs for the New Jersey Gasoline Convenience
    Store Automotive Association, opposed the ordinance and said small businesses
    will be "needlessly hurt" by it. "People under 21 are legally allowed to vote,
    to marry, to serve in the military, but this says they're not responsible enough
    to buy a cigar," Blomgren said. "They have access to a car. The end result is
    that these people are still going to smoke anywhere Price Of Marlboro Cigarettes." With
    a cigar sticking out of his top jacket pocket, Jorge Luis Armenteros, founder
    and president of A Little Taste of Cuba on Witherspoon Street, said he opposed
    the ordinance. But his luxury cigar shop will obey whatever laws on the books in
    Princeton because it is a special place to do business, he said Buying Cigarettes Online. Many Princeton
    University students have purchased products in his store to celebrate special
    accomplishments and events with their families, said Armenteros, noting this
    year marks his business' 20th anniversary in Princeton. "We're not selling
    addictive products, per se," Armenteros said. "We're sharing special moments
    that people celebrate." Princeton resident and pediatrician Stephanie Chorney
    said she was saddened to hear tobacco products used for celebratory purposes
    because of their addictive properties and threat to public health. "It's really
    an eye-opening way of looking at things," she said. In March 2013, Princeton
    became the first Mercer County town to ban smoking on town property.
    DiFerdinando said the goal of the tobacco ordinance is to encourage other towns
    throughout the county to get on board, making it more difficult for customers
    under 21 to buy tobacco nearby. "We're trying to lead by example," DiFerdinando
    said. A report earlier this month by the Institute of Medicine projected 223,000
    fewer premature deaths among those born between 2000 and 2019 if the age of
    tobacco sales was raised to 21. Among adults who become daily smokers, about 90
    percent smoke their first cigarette before age 19, the report said. "This will
    save the lives of the youth who might initiative tobacco use," DiFerdinando said
    of the ordinance. Most states currently set the tobacco purchase age at 18. New
    Jersey, Alabama, Alaska and Utah are the only ones that set a minimum age of 19
    for tobacco sales. A bill pending in the Legislature would make New Jersey the
    first state to increase the legal age to 21. Editor's Note: The headline and
    story have been updated to reflect that Princeton is the seventh town in New
    Jersey to adopt a local ordinance prohibiting tobacco sales to those under 21 Newport Cigarettes Price. Highland Park and
    Garfield adopted similar ordinances earlier this month.
