Sen. Carla Nelson (R-Rochester) announced new legislation today that would decrease youth smoking by raising the sales age for tobacco products
to 21… “Smoking costs Minnesota about $7 billion annually in excess health care costs and lost productivity from smoking. Tobacco 21 will address this problem where it starts.” she said.
Some believe it will only cause them to purchase tobacco through other measures or other states, others believe its just another example of too much government. Currently, two states having minimum age of twenty one to purchase tobacco, Hawaii and California.
