325F.77 PROMOTIONAL DISTRIBUTION.

Subdivision 1.

[Repealed, 1987 c 399 s 5]

Subd. 2.

[Repealed, 1987 c 399 s 5]

Subd. 3.Legislative intent.

Because the state prohibits both the use of tobacco products by minors and the furnishing of tobacco products to minors, and because the enforcement of an age-related restriction on the promotional distribution of tobacco products is impractical and ineffective, it is the intent of the legislature to control the distribution of these products and discourage illegal activity by prohibiting all promotional distribution, except as allowed in this section.

Subd. 4.Prohibition.

No person shall distribute smokeless tobacco products or cigarettes, cigars, pipe tobacco, or other tobacco products as defined in section 297F.01, subdivision 19, except that single serving samples of tobacco may be distributed in tobacco stores.
