AN ACT to amend the public health law, in relation  to  prohibiting  the
  use  of  coupons or use of a "price reduction instrument" to lower the
  price of certain tobacco products

  THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND  ASSEM-
BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:

  Section  1.  Legislative  findings. The legislature finds that tobacco
use is a leading cause of preventable  premature  death  in  the  United
States and the State of New York.
  Given the substantial human and economic costs associated with tobacco
use, New York State has taken numerous steps to reduce tobacco use among
adults  and  to  stop persons under the age of eighteen from starting to
use cigarettes and tobacco products. Because tobacco use persists  among
adults  and  young  adults under the age of eighteen, however, the state
must take further action. Preventing adults and young adults  under  the
age  of eighteen from taking up smoking is critical as 80% of adults who
become daily smokers start smoking before reaching the  age  of  twenty-
one, and nationwide, 99% of smokers start by age twenty-six.
  The  legislature  finds,  based on numerous studies, that high tobacco
prices reduce tobacco consumption among both adults  and  persons  under
the age of eighteen, who are especially price-sensitive.
  Just  as high tobacco prices decrease demand, the availability of low-
priced cigarettes and tobacco products increases demand and  contributes
to continued tobacco use. Low-priced cigarettes and tobacco products are
widely available in New York State through a number of sources.
  The  use of coupons, especially those directed to young people, reduce
prices  for  tobacco  products  and  increase   smoking   among   youth.
Discounts,  particularly  those  marketed  to  youth  entice  consumers,

  Section 1. Legislative findings. The legislature  finds  that  tobacco
use  is  a  leading  cause  of preventable premature death in the United

er,  the  legislature finds that the state should take further action to
discourage adults and young adults from  taking  up  and  continuing  to
smoke cigarettes, use e-cigarettes, or use other tobacco products.
  Despite  New  York  state's laws which prohibit the sale of cigarettes
and e-cigarettes to children under  age  18,  tobacco  use  among  young
adults  persists.  According to recent findings, nine out of ten smokers
first tried cigarettes by age eighteen, and  ninety-nine  percent  first
tried  cigarettes by age twenty-six. In addition, a recent report issued
by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the U.S. Food  and
Drug Administration's Center for Tobacco Products noted that while ciga-
rette  use  among  high  school  students  has  declined,  it still is a
substantial share (9.2%) of the most commonly used tobacco  products  by
these students. Of particular importance, the report notes that e-cigar-
ette  use  tripled  among middle and high school students from 2013-2014
