Mayor Michael Bloomberg signed into law in October a bill that prohibits New Yorkers under the age of 21 from purchasing cigarettes. The law, which was approved by city council with a vote of 35 to 10, will go into effect in early 2014. Retailers that violate the law will be fined up to $1,000 for a first time offense, $2,000 for a second offense and will have their license revoked for repeat offenses within a three year period. New York City is the first major city to raise the smoking age to 21.
