Help Stop Nassau County Politicians from Increasing the Legal Age
The Nassau County Legislature is considering a new proposal
to increase the legal age of purchase for tobacco products from 18 years old to
21 years old.
Raising the legal age to purchase tobacco products would
create inconsistencies with how the state and federal government define
adulthood for other purposes, including:
Serving in the armed forces
Signing a contract, such as buying or selling property
Minors should not use tobacco products, but this
proposal to increase the minimum age law would have many unintended
consequences. Tell your legislators you oppose this proposal and any other
attempts to unfairly target adult tobacco consumers.
