Assembly Speaker Craig Coughlin (D-Middlesex) issued the following statement on the recommendations of the Governor’s Electronic Smoking Device Task Force:
“The recommendations set forth today by the task force on e-cigarettes are comprehensive and thorough. Protecting public health and safety is paramount.
“We have to recognize that vaping could lead to a lifelong addiction for a new generation of New Jerseyans. We must do all we can to ensure this doesn’t happen and to help those currently purchasing vape products.
“I thank Assembly Health and Senior Services Committee chair Herb Conaway, M.D. for taking the lead in addressing the dangers of e-cigarettes. We will review all of the task force recommendations and work with the Senate and the Governor to craft meaningful legislation.”
