I wanted to let you know the good news! After years of work and 75 local communities raising the tobacco sale age to 21, we have done it statewide!

We know that 95% of smokers begin before they turn 21, and more than 80% of adult smokers first try smoking before age 18. Raising the tobacco sale age will help prevent addiction in Minnesota.
Thank you to all of you that made your voices heard and got this passed! We can't do this without you.
Stay healthy and thank you for all you do!
