When the previous Government raised the minimum age to buy Cigarettes and Tobacco products they weren’t really thinking, as they raised the minimum age to buy tobacco products to 18 they also left the legal age to start smoking at 16, wouldn’t they have been better raising the legal age to start smoking to 18 as well! What’s your thoughts on this, and do you think that the current coalition government raise the legal age to start smoking to 18 also.
As a non smoker I’d like to see a government grow a spine and make smoking illegal. Fair enough smoke if you want to but at least spare a thought for people that choose not to.
