    What is a juvenile in possession of tobacco products guilty of?


    Any minor who has tobacco products in their possession is additionally guilty of an incorrigible act.(A.R.S. § 13-3622). Using or possessing tobacco products on school grounds (buildings, parking lots, fields, and vehicles) or at off-campus school sponsored events is a petty offense (delinquent act for minors). The law does not apply to adults using tobacco products as a part of a tobacco prevention or cessation program.(A.R.S. § 36-798.03). Smoking tobacco in locations such as elevators, busses, libraries, museums, and health care institutions is considered a public nuisance and dangerous to public health and is a petty offense (delinquent act for minors). (A.R.S. § 36-601.01). Punishment for delinquent or incorrigible acts may include community service, counseling, education programs, fines, probation and detention (juvenile jail). A.R.S. § 8-321 and 8-341)

Obviously they don't go out in the back parking lot and light up their parents' cigarettes everyday. Drugs on the other hand are held to nearly zero tolerance, despite the principal saying that tobacco would also be regaurded in the same sense. Something could be done about the after-school smokers, but then we wouldn't have much of a school left. It's im
