Local City of Newton health regulation restricting the sale of e-cigarettes to the two Newton adult-only stores takes effect. All other stores that have a tobacco permit (convenience stores, liquor stores, gas, grocery, market, etc.) will NOT be allowed to sell e-cigarettes. This includes tobacco and menthol flavors of e-cigarettes. Example: JUUL, PHIX, juice, pods, etc. may NOT be sold in Newton convenience stores, liquor stores, gas stations, grocery stores, markets. This is a permanent local regulation so please note that even if sales of these products are allowed elsewhere in Massachusetts, they will not be allowed in Newton.
