Princeton Considers Raising Legal Age to Buy Tobacco

Posted on

6ABC discusses how lawmakers in Princeton are considering an ordinance that would ban the sale of tobacco products to customers under the age of 21.

If passed, any retailers who sell tobacco to customers younger than 21 would face a $250 fine. A second violation would yield a $500 fine. After that, businesses would be fined a $1,000 penalty per violation.
