Governor Christie vetoed a bill in 2014 that would ban smoking at New Jersey beaches. It had overwhelming support on both sides of the aisle. So why didn't they just override his veto? Back then, Republicans were hesitant to challenge Christie. Things could be different now.
New Jersey could become the second state to raise the smoking age to 21, as part of a movement that's been spurred in part by a major study released last year and a sharp increase in electronic cigarette use among young people.
The minimum age to buy or sell tobacco products and electronic cigarettes in New Jersey is 19. Several lawmakers from both political parties said that was not old enough and they’re leading the charge to increase the age. There are critics and opponents, but the movement took another step forward Thursday.
