Was selling cigarettes made of candy

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.
