The city of Minnetonka has joined the growing list of cities and towns in Minnesota banning tobacco sales to anyone under the age of 21.

The city council Monday night joined the ranks of places like Minneapolis, Bloomington, Richfield, St.Louis Park and Edina in passing the ordinance.

One council member called it one of the easiest votes he ever cast.

Minnetonka is now the 12th municipality with the ordinance.

It will go into effect in January.
