first of all, I am not judging, and then let me start laughing out loud.

When I was 16 and started buying them for myself (it was done illegally obviously) I thought the same thing. In fact my boyfriend smoked players Light so that’s what I smoked for the longest time. The thing is that they have changed all the names of cigarettes, but if you say players light than they are bound to know what you mean. You should also know if you want regular size or king size, a pack of 25 or 20.

Now for choosing the right store, don’t go into macs milk and expect to buy it without ID.

Find a family owned convenience store in a seedy part of town to begin with. Make sure too that there are no cops outside and don’t act suspicious. Act non chalant and like you know that you are going to get them when you ask. Make small talk if this helps. Also, don’t open them as soon as you leave the store, be nice to the guy that knowingly just sold you cigarettes without asking for Id, you don’t want someone to suspect him and get him fined.

After you do that and pull it off a few times, then you can work your way up to macs milk or 7 11.

New york proposes raising minimum age for cigarette purchases –

Cheap+cigarettes&find_loc=westmont%2c+il san francisco

The proposal would make the age for buying cigarettes and other tobacco products the same as for purchasing liquor, but it would not prohibit people under 21 from possessing or even smoking cigarettes.

It is the latest effort in a persistent campaign to curb smoking that began soon after Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg took office, with bans on smoking in restaurants and bars that expanded more recently to parks, beaches, plazas and other public places.

But this latest proposal, announced by Dr. Thomas A. Farley, the city s health commissioner, and Christine C. Quinn, the City Council speaker and a mayoral candidate, puts New York squarely into the middle of a debate over the rights and responsibilities of young people, and it drew much skepticism. At 18, New Yorkers are old enough to fight in wars, to drive and to vote, but if the smoking restriction passed they would be prohibited from deciding whether to take the risk of smoking.

Ms. Quinn and Dr. Farley defended the proposal, saying that people typically make the transition from experimental smoking to regular smoking around age 20, and that by making cigarettes harder to obtain at a young age the city would make it less likely that people would become lifelong addicts.

With this legislation, we ll be targeting the age group at which the overwhelming majority of smokers start, Ms. Quinn said in announcing the legislation at a City Hall news conference.

While officials focused on the public health aspect of the age limitation, the announcement was also infused with political overtones. In the past, Mr. Bloomberg had always been on hand, standing in front of television cameras to boldly promote public health initiatives. But on Monday he was nowhere to be seen, allowing Dr. Farley to represent the administration and seemingly ceding the spotlight to Ms. Quinn, who initiated the proposal.

By proposing the legislation, Ms. Quinn, a Democrat who polls show is a leading candidate to succeed Mr. Bloomberg, appeared to be positioning herself to follow in his footsteps as a mayor who would make public health a top priority.

Mr. Bloomberg, in fact, had opposed a similar measure in 2006, arguing that raising the age to buy cigarettes would actually make smoking more enticing to teenagers. But he now believes differently, a spokeswoman said, because the city s youth smoking rate has plateaued and recent research has suggested a correlation between a higher smoking age and lower smoking rates.

In interviews, many New Yorkers were largely critical of the proposal, viewing it as an attack on the maturity and self determination of young people.

By 18, people are responsible enough to make their own decisions, said Erik Malave, 23, a music production student at City College. Forcing people to make themselves healthy tends not to work.

Mr. Malave, from Yonkers, has been smoking for about three years, and he breaks for a cigarette four or five times a day. He also said that he thought the law would be a waste of time, and that young people would easily acquire cigarettes if they wanted them. When I turned 18, I bought cigarettes for all my friends who weren t 18, he said.

Jessette Bautista, 21, began smoking when she was 17 and had no problem getting cigarettes from friends who would buy packs for her. She was surprised to hear about a proposal to change the legal age to purchase cigarettes. What happened to freedom? she said.

While alcohol may impair a person s judgment and so warrants a law that requires partakers to be 21 or older, Ms. Bautista said, cigarettes do not alter a person s state of mind. Cigarettes will not intoxicate you the same way as alcohol, she said. It will not put you under any influence.

Under the proposal, the buyer would not be violating the law, but the seller would be. Fines and other penalties for selling cigarettes to minors would remain as they are now and would be imposed on the sellers, not the buyers or their parents.
