November 14, CNN reported that starting from Wednesday, anyone who wants to buy glass bong and glass bongs china products in new york must be at least 21 years old.
Governor Andrew Cuomo signed the bill this summer to deal with health threats caused by the use of these products.
According to a press release, the New York State Police Department is working with the Department of Health to conduct a secret investigation of retailers selling glass bongs china products to under-age young people.
Cuomo said in a statement earlier this month that the goal of the law is very simple, that is, to prevent glass bong king and steam products from entering our young people's hands, so as not to make them form deadly habits. We are taking active actions to ensure that the use of electronic cigarettes among young people in new york is prevented from increasing dramatically and the progress made over the past decades to combat glass bong addiction is prevented from being eliminated.
According to data from new york's Ministry of Health, nearly 27% of the state's high school students are now using electronic cigarettes. In September, new york became the first state in the United States to ban the sale of flavored electronic cigarettes and nicotine electronic liquids to combat the increase in the number of young people using glass bongs china products.
The advocacy group Tobacco Addiction Prevention Foundation said that new york is the 18th state to raise the age of buying glass bong and electronic glass bong products to 21. Other states that passed the legislation include Hawaii, California, New Jersey, Oregon, Maine, Massachusetts, Virginia, Illinois, Delaware, Arkansas, Washington, Maryland, Utah, Vermont, Texas, Connecticut and Ohio.
After lung injury related to electronic atomization occurred nationwide, some states have considered new methods to restrict the sale of glass bong bowl. As of November 5, there have been 2,051 atomization-related diseases and at least 40 deaths have been reported in various states. According to reports, the first fog-related death in new york was a 17-year-old boy from the Bronx.
Last week, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported that vitamin E acetate (sometimes used as an additive in tetrahydrocannabinol and other electronic aerosolized products) may be the culprit in the outbreak of lung injury related to electronic cigarettes. CDC is continuing to test various chemicals.
