Duluth, MN (Learfield) – Smokers under the age of 21 will no longer be able to buy tobacco products in Duluth this spring.
The Duluth City Council passed a Tobacco 21 ordinance at Monday night’s meeting which goes into effect in 120 days.
People who supported the hike were wearing T-shirts that read, “Raise the age. Raise a tobacco-free generation.”
Duluth becomes the 23rd Minnesota city or county to raise the tobacco age from 18 to 21. Neighboring Hermantown is the only other community with an ordinance in northeastern Minnesota.
