Here's a scenario: I'm 17. I go into a gas station to buy cigarettes (or alcohol). They find out I'm not 18 (or 21). What would the punishment be?

Also, if I'm 17 and attempt to buy cigars or cigarettes, do you think they would ask for I.D.?

What will happen? THEY WILL TELL YOUR MUM AND YOU WILL GET A LASHING! Nothing. I work in a petrol station and I would bluntly say no ID no smokes.

Nothing. You say you don't have it on you and leave.

if you actually get the alcohol, like with a fake ID or something, you can get a minor in possession charge. i think thats some community service, or a fine or something. if youre just trying to buy it and they catch you, probably nothing happens.

I have no opinion on this matter.

nothing will happen if u get caught, but u might get lucky and find a place that sells.

Just say you left your id at home. They cant do ****.

Go to a sketchy gas station instead of a big chain and you're alot more likely to get what you want.

Ive noticed that you're probally gonna get carded alot more frequently for alcohol than cigs. My friends 17 and hes bought plenty of cigs.

they'll probably ask for ID if you look like you could be underage. if your age is at all questionable, the person working there will ask for ID (if they are doing their job properly.)


how are you going to get caught buying them? if they sell them to you, obviously they believe you are the right age, so how would you get caught?

if you mean getting caught asking to buy them, they probably wont do anything. at least not for cigarettes. for alcohol there are different laws depending on what state you are in. im pretty sure here in PA you can get fined if you are caught trying to buy alcohol (and maybe cigs) when you are underage.


but most likely you will just be asked for ID, and when you dont show it, they'll just refuse the sale and you leave.

well, it they're dicks they call the cops and you get in trouble. They will definitely ask you for an ID and when you can't produce one that says you're of the legal age they'll probably just tell you to get out of the store.

Depending on where you live you could get the sales person in trouble, a guy working at a Rite Aid around here got arrested when he didn't I.D. a minor who tried to buy cigarettes. I don't know what happened to the kid though so I don't know what would happen to you, if you're just trying to buy cigarettes and are only a year underage you probably will just be told to leave.

I'm 21.

I ALWAYS get carded, even for smokes. But I also look young for my age.

I guess if they tried to call the cops you could just make a run for it. It's not much of a big deal anyway, and you dont wanna stand there and waste time as the cop probably wont waste time going there.

No likelyhood whatsoever. It's seriously no big deal. Just say you don't have one if they ask, and leave. Simple.

In texas you actually can get a Minor in Possession charge for attempted purchase...

That being said, I've never heard of that happening...
