MANKATO, Minn. (KEYC) - The Tobacco 21 ordinance goes into effect Monday, after a year of debate and a unanimous vote.

The city unanimously approved the measure in May, which raises the tobacco purchasing age from 18 to 21.

The approval came a year after the city rejected the ordinance with a 4 to 3 vote.
