Question: What will I get if I steal cigarettes?

Answer: In Arizona, Possession of tobacco by a person under the age of 18 is an incorrigible act and you could face charges in court. There could be various penalties. STEALING is a different story. Theft or shoplifting is a crime and you could be prosecuted for committing this act. You could be ordered to jail or any other options that the judge may decide according to A.R.S. sec 13-1802, 13-1805, 8-341 and 8-201(15)

If you let people under 18 buy smokes you're going to have 6 year olds and 10 year olds smoking, because they think it's cool. Learning by example, really. There's enough teenagers smoking that we don't need to add kids. I don't know what to do, but letting minors buy cigarettes legally is not an option or solution.
