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.
Not sure where you are, but I would hazard a guess:Tax evasionManufacturing tobacco products without a licenseSelling tobacco products without a retail tobacco license
in Ontario im pretty sure that you just cant sell tobacco products to minnors. you cant smoke indoors of public buildings or by the doors (you have to be a certain distance away),school property and such.
Yes, it is illegal for persons under 18. The law states all persons buying tobacco products must show identification and age verification.
Tobacco, and corn, they also caught fish.
"Getting caught" implies there is something wrong or illegal about it, which is not the case. You may be required to declare the tobacco, and could be subject to taxes depending on the amount however; talk to a customs and/or mail official.
In 2010 the tobacco company Phillip Morris admitted to using child exploitation in its labor jobs. Victoria's Secret was also caught exploiting children to pick cotton and other jobs. Hershey's has also been caught exploiting children who harvest their cocoa.
It was mainly tobacco. They also grew corn and caught fish.
The police in France simply don't care... basically anyone can buy tobacco and the police will very rarely give a sh*t.
well 2 have been caught in Calfornia alone in just this week!
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.
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.
