Answer . NO! its only illegal to buy them
When one is 16 years of age, he/she is still attending school. Thiswill be a bad influence on the other students, which is why smokingage is set at 18.
It depends what country?
That depended on the state. Some states had 18, some 16, some 14. Some had no law at all. At some point the Federal Government forced the states to set a uniform age of 18. Du…ring the Clinton Administration, if I remember correctly.
At any age younger than eighteen, you are still considered to be a minor. Most people's body's are still growing even after they turn eighteen and become adults. At this age, …smoking can, and most likely will, stunt your growth.
yes,because it can get you to lots of trouble. Like drinking. Or after drinking you get caught by a police and go to jail. This is why it is illegal to smoke under the age of …18.
\nI'm not quite sure if there is rule against it but my personal opinion is think about it before you do it.\nit may be what your friends are doing but that doesn't mean you h…ave to\ni know this might sound extremely parenty but consider your future\ncause if you do smoke there is a chance you will get cancer WHICH IS HORRIBLE\nbut yeah im not sure if it illegal ????
Well, you're not suppose to, but minors do anyway. Im 17 going on 18 and ive been smoking since I was 12 years old. Its a bad habit. And puts a hole in your pocket whenever yo…u buy them. Buying cigarettes are not cheap. If a family member smokes, watch them. Add up how much they spend on cigs for 6 months. Believe it or not, it may come up to over 200. Not cheap! I wish I could go back and never pick up that first cigarette! Id be in better shape.

No age is right to be smoking! Smoking is bad. It leads to very serious diseases!!! (Answered by a smoker)
Any adequate age should be determined as a legal age. It could be 19,20,21, they would be almost the same. Many people think that 21 would be more adequate.
