Englewood N.J. Passes Law Requiring Age 21 To Be Sold Tobacco (The Record, Reporter Kim Lueddeke; The Star-Ledger, Reporter Kathryn Brenzel)

Posted on

The Bergen Record’s front page edition discusses the new Englewood ordinance, quoting GASP Board of Trustees President Fred M. Jacobs, MD, JD for his experience as NJ Commissioner of Health when the State raised the age of tobacco sale to 19 in 2006. GASP’s Executive Director Karen Blumenfeld, Esq. provided key research to the Bergen Record, on jurisdictions that require age 21 to be sold tobacco.  The Bergen Record story was published on the front page of the Star-Ledger’s New Jersey section as well.
