I think the fine is $500
There is no law against selling cigarettes. There is a law against selling them to underage minors.
You would politely ask an indifferent adult to purchase cigarettes on your behalf.
No. In New Jersey, it is not illegal for a minor to smoke cigarettes, BUT it is illegal for minors to purchase cigarettes.
Basically, the person who sold you the cigarettes could be in greater trouble than you.
The Government makes the laws.
It's not illegal to BUY them it is is illegal for someone to SELL them to you.
The reason why people smoke underage is an easy answer DEPRESSION!
No, they are regulated similarly to cigarettes. Smokers of both cigars and cigarettes are aware of the much-higher taxes being levied on cigarettes, ostensibly to pay smoking-related public health costs.
If you are underaged to buy cigarettes then it will be difficult and we cannot advise on how to perform illegal activities, sorry. As of 2009, selling cigarettes to underaged (under 18 in France) people is illegal, although in some countries it is common practice for a non-minor to buy them and sell them to minors, which is also illegal.
AnswerYES, completely. Why would the set an age if it was legal to buy them under that set age?AnswerYes. It's not just illegal, it's wrong. Cigarettes have over 40 negative health effects; see the link below. And buying cigarettes underage will subject you to big fines and possibly jail time, depending on your state's laws.
