Its good for them to start at an early adult age if mom n dad smokes. !!! This way the whole family will be happy smokers instead of only 2nd hand smoking that no fun

The kids at school who smoke are getting their cigarettes from their parents or on the black market. Going rate is $2 a cigarette if you want one.....a kid can get cigarettes if they really want to. Raising the age hasn't stopped them smoking here (it's 18 here too - and we only have vending machines in pubs and clubs). Believe me, if they can buy weed, they can buy cigarettes.....and they manage to be able to get weed just fine.

A couple of years ago you had to be 16 to buy cigarettes.Now its 18. My whole family doesnt smoke.The stupid thing is they STILL have vending machines to buy cigarettes and no one controls the age. I smoked cigarettes with "friends" thought i also wanted to be "cool" but its just stupid.We see plenty of 15/16 year olds walking down the streets with a cigarettes in the hand.My parents only aloud me to smoke outside because they knew i smoke and if i didnt smoke at home i would walk down the street and smoke there.

This sounds so wrong on so many levels. Kids smoking at 17 is not good for their health just as it is for anyone. Younger does not make it better. And the whole family smoking is no good either.
