Juul and vape association on opposite sides over New York’s tobacco 21 bill

A bill in support of “tobacco 21” regulations passed the New York state Assembly and was delivered to the Senate, with opposition from industry associations – and support from Juul

Bill A00558 is now being assessed by the Senate Finance Committee. If passed, it will raise the minimum legal purchasing age for tobacco and vaping products from 18 to 21, following an emerging trend across the US. Virginia governor Ralph Northam signed such a bill last month, for instance.

However, the New York State Vapor Association (NYSVA), which represents more than 700 independent vape stores in the state, told ECigIntelligence it opposes the bill on the grounds that it will adversely affect the decline of teen smoking in the state.
