A back-in-the-day soda shop in St. Paul has been busted for selling cigarettes -- made of candy.
Lynden's, on Hamline Avenue near Cretin-Derham Hall High School, said a city inspections official came in last week and gave the shop a warning and added that a misdemeanor citation -- with a $500 fine -- would be next if the non-carcinogenic confections continue to be sold.
From the Store's Facebook: Yesterday afternoon we got BUSTED by the the City of St. Paul Safety and Inspections! We will no longer be selling candy/bubblegum cigars and cigarettes as it is a misdemeanor in the City of St. Paul. Listen to yesterdays Garage logic with Joe Souchery for more details!
