It is against the law to sell or provide cigarettes and tobacco to minors in the United States. Just because they “look over 18”, that is not a sufficient excuse. Stores must always ask for identification (and likewise when selling alcohol).
Anyone caught selling tobacco products to minors may be subject to fines, possible jail time, and a suspended or revoked tobacco license.
Anyone caught buying tobacco products for a minor may be subject to the same consequences.
Smoking has long term effects on health and organs. It can be a very nasty habit that is often very difficult to break away from.
Save a couple lives by not providing minors with tobacco. You’ll save the minor from a little bit of self-deterioration and you’ll save yourself from losing money and sitting in jail.
