The minimum age to purchase tobacco and e-cigarette products will be set at 21 and new regulations for the sale of e-cigarettes would be introduced if a provision in Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s budget proposal is approved.

Cuomo on Saturday announced he would raise the tobacco age from 18 to 21 as part of his spending plan that is scheduled to be unveiled on Tuesday.

“We have made great strides to stamp out teen smoking, but new products threaten to undo this progress to the detriment of millions of Americans. In New York, we refuse to stand idly by while unscrupulous businesses target our young people and put their very futures at risk,” Cuomo said in a statement.

“With this comprehensive proposal, we are taking aggressive action to combat this very real public health crisis and curb the use of nicotine products before they result in deadly consequences for an entire generation of New Yorkers.”

The proposal will also end the sale of tobacco and electronic cigarette products in pharmacies. Major chains like CVS have already halted the sale of tobacco products in their stores.

New display restrictions will also be proposed for tobacco packaging and products. At the same time, the move will clarify regulations for flavored e-cigarette liquids and require that e-cigarette products are sold through licensed retailers.

The proposals were praised by supporters of further regulations on e-cigarettes.

“As nicotine addiction among young adults continues to climb across the nation, action at the state level is needed to protect our children from the harm posed by electronic cigarettes,” said Suffolk County Executive Steve Bellone.

“While Suffolk County has enacted sweeping new penalties to deter the illegal sales of vaporizers, I applaud Governor Cuomo for proposing sensible regulations that would also restrict the sale of flavored vaping products. We cannot allow the vaping industry to drown out the voices of health professionals, school administrators, parents and students who agree that action is needed to stop this health crisis.”
