WJON – St. Cloud Considers Tobacco 21

Earlier this month the council asked city administrators to prepare an ordinance amendment.

In May Edina adopted an ordinance restricting the sale of tobacco and tobacco related products to people under the age of 21.

In late August Dr. Julie Anderson and representatives from the CentraCare Health Foundation organization, Crave the Change, gave a presentation outlining their recommendation that the joint area cities of St. Cloud, St. Augusta, St. Joseph, Sauk Rapids, Waite Park and Sartell each adopt an ordinance prohibiting the sale of tobacco and tobacco related products to persons under the age of 21.
