DULUTH, MN (KDAL) - Monday marks the 5th anniversary of the Minnesota Freedom to Breathe Act, the law that made state bars, restaurants and other work places smoke free.  Pat McKone, Director of Mission Programs for the American Lung Assocation,  says Duluth, Cloquet and Moose Lake were among the first cities in the state to enact smoke free measures.  The law was a positive step, but smoking still is the leading cause of death and disease in Minnesota and 625,000 residents still smoke.  Advocates are gathering at the Zeitgeist Arts Cafe in Duluth Monday to celebrate and to focus on the additional work that needs to be done to improve the health of Minnesotans and prevent more youth from starting to use tobacco.
