The Minneapolis City Council is expected to vote on a resolution Friday morning that would raise the age of tobacco sales in the city to 21.
A release from the city said, if approved, the resolution would go into effect on Oct. 1. The current legal age to purchase tobacco in Minneapolis is 18.
Falcon Heights and Shoreview each voted to raise the age in their cities to 21 earlier this month.
In the metro area, Edina, St. Louis Park, Bloomington and Plymouth have also passed resolutions raising the age to 21.
