New Jersey Congressman Frank Pallone plans to introduce legislation that proposes changes to regulations on tobacco products.
The Reversing the Youth Tobacco Epidemic Act of 2019 would prohibit the sale of flavored tobacco.
“No menthol no flavors, alright. For everything,” he said.
It would raise the minimum age to purchase tobacco across every state.
“New Jersey already raised the smoking age to 21 but this will bring up the rest of the country.”
The bill would direct the FDA to prohibit non face to face sales of all tobacco products.
