The video above aired in March regarding a bill proposed at the state level to raise the age of tobacco sales to 21.
Falcon Heights Wednesday night became the second Minnesota city this week to raise the age of tobacco sales to 21.
By a 3-2 vote, the city council voted to increase the sales age and to restrict the sale of all flavored tobacco products to adult-only tobacco stores.
It follows a vote Monday by the Shoreview City Council to increase the sales age to 21 in that city.
The two communities join five others in the state - Edina, St. Louis Park, Bloomington, Plymouth and North Mankato - in raising the age to 21.
Seven cities including Falcon Heights, Minneapolis, St. Paul, Shoreview, St. Louis Park, Robbinsdale and Duluth, have now voted to restrict the sale of flavored tobacco.
