Posted on 10/08/2019
Activist group Tobacco 21 on Monday, Oct. 7 presented to City Council their proposal to prohibit anyone under 21 years of age from buying tobacco or vape products in Cape Girardeau.

Council instructed staff to research the proposed ordinance changes. While many recognize the public health benefits of preventing minors from smoking and using tobacco or vape products, there are also concerns from personal choice and business advocates.
