  • State Sen. Joe Addabbo, D-Queens, told The Center Square on Tuesday that his office has received confirmation from the state attorney general’s office that S2819A, which became law last year, only applies to the sale of nitrous oxide cartridges and not the canisters of whipped cream.
  • He said the intent behind his bill was to stop the sale of nitrous oxide canisters, the steel cartridge that can be found in whipped cream containers but also sold separately. Nitrous oxide, also known as laughing gas, can produce a high if inhaled.
