Englewood bans tobacco sales to those under 21

ENGLEWOOD (AP) — Englewood has become the first town in New Jersey to raise the age to buy tobacco products to 21.

The ordinance covers, cigarettes, cigars and e-cigarettes.

City Council President Lynne Algrant tells The Record she thinks the longer they can keep kids away from the products, the better off for everybody.

New Jersey raised the legal age to buy cigarettes from 18 to 19 in 2006.

A bill is making its way through the Legislature that would ban the sale of tobacco products and electronic smoking devices to anyone under 21.
