Govt To Raise The Age Limit For Purchasing Cigarettes.
Heard on the news today that anyone buying cigarettes in future will have to prove they are 21. Those smokers should be grateful they don't live in the USA, where the age limit to buy cigarettes and alcohol in the major supermarkets is 40 yrs old. Places like Walmart, Target, Publix etc already have this limit and they strictly enforce it. However, it seems futile to me when you can go accross the road to a convenience store and by cigs and alcohol without any need for ID. One time I was in Walmart in Kissimmee when a guy in front of me buying 200 Marlboro, was asked for Id by a pretty young thing. He went ballistic! "Do you know how old I am?! I'm 69 years old and fought in Vietnam! Stick em up your ass!" as you can see, he wasn't impressed!
