Governor Tim Walz signed 11 bills into law Saturday, including raising the state's age to buy tobacco and e-cigarettes to 21.
With that signing, Minnesota becomes the 25th state to adopt the Tobacco 21 law.
The goal of it is to keep tobacco products out of middle and high schools.
Many cities in the Northland have already adopted the law. That includes Duluth, Hermantown, Cloquet, Hibbing and Bemidji.
Statewide, 73 cities and counties have raised the tobacco age to 21.
