I noticed that my seniors in highschool are smoking out in the school bathroom, gas stations, and even surprisingly in open-public space. Of course majority of them are under 18 which concludes that they are underage. Why the hell aren't the schools doing anything about it ? Does this mean it is alright to smoke even if you're underage? or is it just my school that doesn't care?

Good point.
If you can bear to hear the truth you've spoken
Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools,
Or watch the things you gave your life to, broken,
And stoop and build 'em up with worn-out tools

Schools don't seem to care much anymore.

But the schools are basically powerless, and if the parents are ok with the kids smoking, they can only stop them smoking on school property.
Now 100% humour free, in accordance with the rules.

If its in the UK i thought it was just illegal to buy cigarettes under 18?

At my old school we were aloud to smoke outside as long as we weren't on school property otherwise they would call the cops on us, so everyone would smoke on the sidewalk right out front of the school to avoid getting in trouble.
#11
well, the school is powerless to do anything at gas stations or open public places that aren't on school property, also smoking probably isn't particularly high on their rule enforcement priority list.

At my high school there was a designated line at which they were no longer on school property, so the school could not punish them for it.

They don't try to stop them because its a waste oif energy. You can't stop them smoking as much as you can stop the tides. Every school has a group of kids who smoke almost entirely because they're not supposed to. The more you try to enforce it, the more likely they are to want to keep doing it.

At the school here, all the smokers hafta leave school property before they smoke. But as soon as they're off the steps of the school EVERYONE lights up. School can't do anything about it.

I'm sure it depends on the laws of the state. I think the law in Massachusetts is that it's illegal is buy cigarettes if you're under 18. If you have them, you can smoke them I think..

In that case, natural selection should deal with it.

In the bathroom? Idiots. Smoking in school was unbelievably easy to get away with so long as you're not inside and you're somewhere that hall monitors aren't going to go.

Yeah, write to my fanclub about it, honey.

you forget that it is LEGAL to smoke after the age of 16.

Its just ILLEGAL to SELL to people below the age of 18.

If you get served, its legal to smoke them.

Our college just enforces that people smoke OFF the college grounds. Smokers can stand on the road, but arent allowed to stand even just on the inside of the gate lol.

no, they don't care unless it's just infront of someone.
Yesterday a gay met up stoned and drunk (not lying, I was there when he smoked/drank, I didn't do anything though. I almost never drink. I hate beer. And smoke. + it's unhealthy).
So he came to class, totally wasted and stuff, and the two teachers (one for each lesson) didn't really say anything to it.
But haven't got any response to it yet, today was exam, so idk.

The college I went to had a smoking area, but that was before the new ban came in so I dunno if that's still allowed. Schools can't do much; if anything it's your parents' responsibility. Your school is more concerned with things like truancy, because it affects grades and therefore their pay, whereas smoking on its own won't. Smoking in gas stations is probably unwise.

It's only illegal for under-18s to BUY tobacco products. Anyone can smoke it.

if you are in the UK, smoking in the school is illegal due to the "no smoking in enclosed public spaces law"

our school cracks down on it, but when that law came in they were just like "PLEASE stop smoking, or we will get fined and become an even ****ter school"

I school ****ing blows. Im so glad I only have two days left of compulsory education.

Yer UK is cool Used to be 16 to buy them, any age to smoke them (but could still get them taken off you if under 16). Now its 18 to buy them, but still get them taken off you.

This has been said before but ill back it up

Legal to smoke just not to buy/sell to (please note smile is not becuase i smoke just becuase i answered the question)((i dont smoke))

Just like Alcohol illegal to sell to but legal to drink

I found this out a little while ago anyone caught selling Alcohol to an underage person gets fined £20,000 :/ and thats to the person not the place they are selling from.

There's nothing to do about it. If they would take action, it wouldn't have long term effect. The guys will turn 18 anyway, and proceed with smoking.

In the united states, you are wrong. Tobacco tickets are issued to anyone under the age of 18 in possession of tobacco in any form (except for all those native american ritual exceptions).

My school, has a smoking lounge.

It isn't illegal to smoke under 18 noob, it's only illegal to buy them under 18.

Don't argue, look up the law.

Who cares.

They shouldn't smoke in the gas station though. That can cause 'splosions.

Uh no. I've worked at places that sell tobacco, you're wrong. I've spoken with police officers and looked up the law.

You may get a ticket for smoking in a non-smoking area or in a public area that is considered smoke-free, but not for being under 18.
