Ordinance ups age to buy cigarettes in Iola



February 9, 2016 - 12:00 AM

Starting June 1, tobacco products will not be sold to anyone under 21 in Iola.

City Council members on Monday voted, 6-1, to support a Tobacco 21 ordinance, making Iola the third such community in the state with such a law. Kansas City adopted a similar ordinance in November; Olathe earlier this month.

Advocates repeated their intention Monday of making similar requests in Humboldt, Moran, Gas and Mildred — wherever tobacco is sold locally.
