Smoking age limit

Ministers are considering raising the minimum legal age for buying tobacco in England from 16 to 18.” As if the current age limit stopped 12-year-olds from smoking. Mind you, I did always find it odd that you could legally buy cigarettes before you could legally buy alcohol.

  1. In my opinion, if you’re considered old enough to have kids and the massive responsibility that it entails, you’re old enough to have consensual sex with whomever you like (however you like), drink, smoke and drive (although not at the same time, please!)

    The law needs to make up its mind.
