A Plan to Address Youth Vaping
For the first time in over 17 years, the number of young Minnesotans using tobacco products has increased. The rise in popularity of vaping has given way to an increased amount of vaping-related illnesses, and we plan to address this issue next session. You can read more about the issue and our new proposal to address it here.
Yesterday, the Minnesota Sentencing Guidelines Commission voted to advance a five year cap on probation terms. Probation terms for the same crime vary widely across the state, and many Minnesotans are still receiving 20, 30, and even 40 year probation terms. You can read the statement my POCI colleagues and I put out celebrating the decision here.
Please reach out if you have any questions for me!
