NYC bans tobacco sales to anyone under age 21

from The Associated Press via ABC News

Mayor Michael Bloomberg signed landmark legislation banning the sale of tobacco products to anyone under the age of 21, making New York the first large city or state in the country to prohibit sales to young adults. During a brief ceremony at City Hall, Bloomberg said raising the legal purchase age from 18 to 21 will help prevent young people from experimenting with tobacco at the age when they are most likely to become addicted. City health officials say 80 percent of smokers start before age 21. more
