Thread: Smoking Underage

  1. #1
    Okay, so I was out and about a while ago, driving with mum to her dentist appointment and we pull in the drive way. This eleven year old kid (he was so little), was not only wearing a skater hat, and his collar high up. But he was smoking. What made it worse, was what looked like his MOTHER, was standing right next to him.







    Now, I don't know about you but this is just sick.











    What are your thoughts on Smoking underage? What should be the legal age to smoke?

    Smoking should be banned full stop no matter what age.

    That's shocking but there is worse on YouTube.







    The legal smoking age used to be 16 but now it's 18, I think the legal age is fine as it is.







    @Strider: If smoking was made illegal, it would mean a lot less money for the Government and more problems for the police to deal with, as well as more drug smugglers etc. Simply put it wouldn't work in practise unfortunately.

    That's exactly right, it would cause too much commotion.







    I mean, yeah the legal age is 18 - but why would you want to smoke?

    People who smoke argue it reliefs stress. Or they enjoy it.

    I believe people should be free to make decisions for themselves. Governments have way too much power running our lives as it is. As for the skater hat and collar style, that sounds awfully judgmental, eh? I have personally known people who work as executives and wear 3-piece suits who consume things far worse than tobacco.

    18 is a good age.....not made illegal after that...teach young children how bad it is many will never start....

    I have to say, its a bad habbit, I dont smoke, but some of my friends do. They start because they THINK its cool, but its not.

    People shouldn't even be smoking, not underage kids. It's outrageous, and I am disgusted. I'll never touch a smoking cigarette in my life if it means the end of me.

    Lol, blame the parents!!!







    I say if they want to kill their lungs, let them. No point in trying to stop them because you'll just start a ruckus with the parents that are leaving them to it. Sure, we'll look at them in disgust and wonder why the hell we're leaving them, but again, it's them.
