The borough also said that refreshments and giveaways would be provided.

The matter of vaping, particularly with respect to youth use thereof, has prompted legislation on the state level in response to the perceived dangers.  Effective April 20, New Jersey will completely ban the sale of flavored vaping products.  Governor Murphy also signed legislation which would prohibit the use of coupons and rebates for vaping goods.
