Why Smoking Should be Illegal in Teenage Years
Illegal to Purchase, Legal to Use?
"Cigarette smoking is the single most important cause of preventable illness and
premature death in Canada. Reducing tobacco usage among youth is the best hope
for long-term reduction in lung cancer."
- The Canadian Lung Association
Certain laws are made to prohibit certain actions. The fact that persons under
the age of 19 in Ontario may not purchase cigarettes indirectly implies they may
not smoke cigarettes before the age of 19. This law is obviously a useless
deterrent because the vast majority of smokers begin smoking between the ages of
15 to 19, signaling a refusal to abide by the boundaries set in place.
