Not Old Enough To Purchase Cigarettes
Local shops, tobacco stores, and more are going to feel the impact of the City Councils vote. The age of purchasing cigarettes is changing from 18 to 21 in the New York City, New York area. There are many gas stations and other vendors that will feel the impact of this decision. For those who think that the age 18 is mandatory, think again. The federal minimum is 18 which give the local government free range on how old an individual needs to be in order to purchase tobacco products. The impact on the local economy will be drastic and be affected dramatically fast.
