    printer friendly version

    Question: Is it true that Arizona is the only state where possession of tobacco or tobacco products by minors is illegal?

    Answer: As of February 28, 1997, Federal law does not allow retailers to sell cigarettes, tobacco, or smokeless tobacco to anyone under the age of 18. This law applies to all states. Laws regarding the possession of tobacco are left up to the individual states. Even though we have not been able to research all of the state laws, we do know that Arizona is not alone in the law prohibiting minors from possessing tobacco products.

    anything can be considered a drug, your body makes its own drugs. Tobacco has been a part of civilization for an untold number of years. Ciggarettes are dangerous, but its up to the individual, not the government, too decide.

    I think that everyone needs to mind there own buisness. If a teenager wants to smoke than they should be able to. It shouldnt be up to someone else whether or not they should get into trouble, its there coice if they want to get cancer or not

    not to be mean at all... but that whole part about tobacco "calming the mind" is wrong... tobacco is a drug... a drug that is classified most anywhere as a stimulant. And a stimulant is defined as An agent, especially a chemical agent such as caffeine, that temporarily arouses or accelerates physiological or organic activity. A stimulus or an incentive A food or drink, especially an alcoholic drink, believed to have a stimulating effect. so... what was that stuff about it calming your mind again?

    nobody is in the dark about the dangers of smokeing. If they are they should take a look at, I dunno the warning on every pack of cigarettes.. let people decide for themselves if they want to smoke or not.
