Age to but tobbaco raised from 16 to 18.
Thoughts? Does anyone care?
I think so anyway...
though it's not really going to stop it entirely, those pesky little blighters will still get their hands on them somehow...
*shakes head in disapproval...
Hah, many of my friends won't be happy, but I can't imagine it'll be difficult at all to get hold of them anyway.
I actually bought my first pack of cigarettes yesterday, was actually surprised to see I didn't get ID'd or anything, as I'm only sixteen. Although I can't say I know too much about it...
Is that normal, anyway?
Oh, and I'd just like to point out they weren't for me.
I can't see a lot changing.
the statistic that 9% of 11-15 year olds smoke. Seems pretty high.
hopefully my sisters mates who are 13/14 are gonna be fucked for getting the stuff now. its a nasty habit and sad to see people that dependant on a substance.
can get hold of alcohol pretty easily, so why not fags?
although, sadly, I know it's still going to be easy as hell for young 'uns to buy them.
already existing laws there would be no need for extra legisation.
like the law that says its illegal to serve alchol to an already innebriated person.
