Greenburgh considering law regulating locations for vaping, electronic cigarette sales
Release Date: April 16, 2019

The Town Board is considering  a local law which would regulate the locations in the Town that Electronic Nicotine Delivery Systems (ENDS) [such as vapes, electronic cigarettes, etc.] may be sold and in the manner in which these items may be displayed. The local law would: (1) prohibit the sale of ENDS products within 1,000 ft. of any public or private school, playground, park, or library Town-wide; (2) allow the sale of these products as accessory uses in permitted retail establishments provided that no ENDS or ENDS components or parts shall be stored, exhibited, or displayed in windows of the premises and provided that all ENDS or ENDS components and parts shall not be accessible to the public without assistance of authorized personnel; and (3) allow the sale of ENDS products as a primary use in the GI and LI Districts provided that no ENDS or ENDS components or parts shall be stored, exhibited, or displayed in windows of the premises and provided that all ENDS or ENDS components and parts shall not be accessible to the public without assistance of authorized personnel. The local law seeks to limit the siting of such facilities frequented by youth in light of the known health concerns that are correlated with tobacco products.
