I know full well that you are not aloud to buy tobacco but i have not heard of any law or anything regarding smokking the stuff.
What accualy happends if your on the high street and the police see you smkoing, not drugs or anythin, just normal cigs?
That's a good question. I saw a bunch of little boys smoking when I was walking down the high street - I'd say the youngest was about seven. Me being me, I couldn't keep my mouth shut and I said, 'Oh that's not a very good thing for you to be doing,' and they started laughing and one said as I walked away, 'Don't be silly - don't be a willy...'
I couldn't help but laugh- about their rhyme- not their smoking.
They were doing it right out in front of everyone though and didn't make any attempt to hide it from anyone. It would seem to me that the people who sell the cigarettes to underage kids get in trouble moreso than the kids who smoke them do.
What jaii fails to understand (as do many people on the web) is that the people reading the question do not only live in his country (whichever that is!) but all over the world, and different countries have different laws. Egypt allows smoking at any age. Even within one country, the USA, different States have different laws. All 50 States forbid underage purchase, although the ages are different in some places. However the ban only concerns purchase, not posession or use. One state (Mass) allows adults to give cigarettes to underage persons.
