Saint Paul, Minn. has increased the minimum age to purchase flavored tobacco and vaping products to 21.

The ban is one of a number of steps the city has taken regarding flavored  tobacco. In 2016, St. Paul restricted where flavored tobacco products could be sold.

Separately on Wednesday, West St. Paul—which is located just south of St. Paul—increased the minimum age to purchase tobacco products, flavored or otherwise, from 18 to 21.
