NJ Rev Stat § 2A:170-51.5 (2016) What's This?

2A:170-51.5 Findings, declarations relative to flavored cigarettes.

1.The Legislature finds and declares that:

a.There has been a proliferation of flavored cigarettes in recent years, and many of these products have fruit, chocolate or other flavors that are particularly attractive to children;

b.According to public health experts, the existence of these products increases the incidence of tobacco use among children;

c.The earlier a person begins using tobacco, the more likely the person will become addicted to tobacco products and continue to smoke throughout that person's life;

d.As a result, flavored cigarettes lead to increased tobacco use and addiction, higher health care costs, and a greater incidence of smoking-related illness and death; and

e.Therefore, flavored cigarettes pose a significant threat to the health of the general public, and the protection of the public health warrants that the sale and distribution of these products be prohibited in this State.
