9-1-1 Lifeline Law
In 2009, NJ adopted the Lifeline Law, which allows minors to summon medical assistance for intoxicated underage persons without being prosecuted for underage drinking.
HCCDFC mailed the following letters (seen below) to 843 tobacco retailers throughout Hudson County to remind them of the tobacco laws, to always check ID and not sell tobacco products to persons under the legal age of 19. Each mailing included a letter to the store owner, and a modified version of the “Look, See, Check ID” in both English and Spanish. The letter also included the FDA information to each vendor for support.
HCCDFC also advertised New Jersey’s law that prohibits retailers from selling tobacco to customers under the legal age of 19 on twelve billboards throughout the county. The coalition’s aim is to make sure that tobacco retailers follow the law by checking ID and not selling tobacco to youth under 19.
