Did your city raise the legal purchasing age of tobacco from 18 to 21 this year?
Since Edina became the first city in Minnesota to pass the Tobacco 21 ordinance last June, 10 more cities have joined!
St. Louis Park, Bloomington, Plymouth, North Mankato, Shoreview, Falcon Heights, Minneapolis, St. Peter, Richfield and Roseville joined in to make sure to put the health of their community first!
This wouldn't be possible without the tireless work of our volunteers, reaching out to their local city council members asking them to vote yes on the ordinances. We continue to work with municipalities across the state on similar policies as well as the statewide Tobacco 21 legislation. If you want to help your community raise the age to purchase tobacco to 21 years old, please send us a note and we can help you to begin the process!
