Moorhead employees age tobacco and ban flavored products

Moorhead employees age tobacco and ban flavored products

A number of people appeared to support the ban during a public hearing ahead of the vote. Becky Anderson, respiratory manager for Sanford Heath, spoke of the years she has spent dealing with those dying of diseases resulting from smoking. She said she sat beside the beds of thousands of patients, trying to bring them some measure of comfort when many of them were dying. Alderman Matt Gilbertson cast the lone dissenting vote. He said government can’t regulate people’s behavior. He said prohibition doesn’t work and people will just cross into North Dakota to buy tobacco in Fargo.

KFGO reported that the City Council voted 7-1 on Tuesday to adopt an ordinance that raises the legal age from 18 to 21 and bars all flavored products from licensed stores, including menthol cigarettes, flavored chewing or smokeless tobacco, e-cigarettes and vape juices. The ordinance brings the city into compliance with a federal law that raises the minimum legal sales age for all tobacco products to 21.
