You can not POSSESS or PURCHASE tobacco products, but you can use them, if you are under 18. So, if you get caught, you have to say it's somebody else's. I live in florida and tons of my friends smoke them, your just not suppose to have a pack of them or anything if a cop searches you.
But if you have the cigarettes in your hand isn't it then in your possession, therefore illegal :P.
ok cool. one of my teachers told me that and i never believed him so i decided to ask. thanks :)
