Laws of New York

New York LawTobacco use is the leading cause of preventable death. State and local government regulation of these deadly products is warranted and necessary to prevent consumers from starting tobacco use and support addicted users trying to quit. Accordingly, New York State and its municipalities have enacted measures regulating tobacco product use and sales. These policies foster New York’s tobacco-free norm, and counter tobacco companies’ efforts to present tobacco use as a reasonable and appealing choice.
