New York Attorney General Letitia James announced Wednesday that Long Island will get over $16 million from a settlement reached with e-cigarette maker Juul.
The state is receiving a total of $112 million from the company over Juul's alleged role in the rise of underage vaping in the county.
Some of the funds will be used to crack down on retailers who sell nicotine products to minors.
"The county executive will put some funds towards enforcement so we can close down a significant number of illegal smoke shops on Long Island all throughout the state of New York," James says.
Around $7.5 million will be allocated to Nassau County and $8.8 million will go to Suffolk County.
