You need to be a bit more specific... This question doesn't make much sense. Are you looking for a specific case? I think we all know that tobacco contains nicotine, I haven't read any specific case where big tobacco lied about their products containing nicotine.

Who sells cigarettes and other things?

Because people still smoke and the U.S. and Canada are free countries (so we've been told.) Stores can't sell cigarettes to 18 years and under and if caught could be shut-down. The very governments in both countries loved the revenue tobacco sales brought in and were fully aware of the carcinogens the tobacco companies were putting into what was once pure tobacco and now the governments are taking the heat off themselves trying to blame the tobacco companies or putting the heat on smokers.

How old do you have to be in order to be able to smoke legally?

Florida statutes indicate that the age to purchase tobacco and tobacco related products is 18 years of age, to be proven upon purchase with a valid, state- or nation-issued identification card (drivers licenses suffice). HOWEVER - it is completely legal for said persons to use (smoke, chew, etc) tobacco and tobacco related products at 16 years. Please realize that it is not uncommon for law enforcement personnel to see it as just cause to pursue investigation on underage persons. Thus, I would not recommend doing it until you turn 18.
