POINT PLEASANT, NJ – Under “Murphy’s Law”, a draconian and inconsistent battery of executive orders that decide who and who isn’t essential, one business owner is being forced to shut down his store. E-Cig Outpost, a vape shop in Point Pleasant was part of a crackdown by the local police department this week. New Jersey residents can buy cigarettes at the local convenience store or liquor store, but if you only sell tobacco products, under the absurd definition of the law, you are committing a crime. That’s what happened to Anthony Monte, 50, of Jackson, who was charged by the Point Pleasant Police with violating the emergency orders by opening his vape shop, E-Cig Outpost, and advertising curbside pick-up. Monte was previously warned by police, even with curbside pickup, police said he was in violation of Murphy’s Law. Monte can’t open his store, but all of his online and brick & morter competitors can operate their business. Do you agree?
