    Yes.

    Because if they can't keep themselves from sinking their teeth in candy, what more an intoxicatingly lucsious stick of tobacco and deadly stuff? They'd probably get hooked on the stuff faster than a legal person would.   They make it for 18 years old and above 'coz the...

    also my older brother, grandfather and many of my uncles and other family. And it sucks. I hate smoke. I get dizzy and sick, it's awful. The worst thing is that i grew up in this smoke, my lungs are probably black and rotten. And I did mot choose this. I can't sit around with...
