Cuomo announced Saturday that he will include the proposal in his 2019 executive budget.
The legislation would ban sale of tobacco and electronic cigarette products in pharmacies, restrict their display in retail stores that are not adult-only and require that e-cigarettes be sold only by licensed retailers.
The governor says New York has made “great strides” to stamp out teen smoking, but new products threaten to undo the progress.
