Big Wins in Local Policy

The past few weeks have been exciting for local policy, as Minnesota is now up to 9 cities that have restricted tobacco sales through Tobacco 21. The newest cities to adopt Tobacco 21 are Falcon Heights, Minneapolis, Shoreview, and St. Peter. Another big success is that Falcon Heights restricted all flavored tobacco, including menthol, to adult-only stores, while Mendota Heights restricted all flavors, excluding menthol.
