WTF?
i was in YORK, UK with my school 2 months ago. Some in my class are smoker like i am and we live in austria.
but when we wanted to buy cig the said u have to be 18 - ok we asked older people to buy us cigs, but then we had no fire...
so we went back to the store and wantwed to buy a fire lighter. they told us that the LIGHTER is just for 21 yrs old ???

WTF?
cigarettes 18
fire lighter 21?

is this everywhere in UK? xD

The Uk is weird like that. When I wanted to buy a sixpack of beer there they wanted to see my ID. As a 21 year old thats definitly something you have to get used to over there.

the rules are so dumb you get shocked for a moment because you think they just have a weird taste of humor. but eventually its the law.... i couldnt stand shit laws like that :) never came across one though... i bet you felt arsed big time :) lighters 21.... haha, so you can chew cigrattes from the age of 18 to 21

it's a policy called "think 21", the legal age is still the same as it ever was in the uk (16 for tobacco, 18 for alcohol etc), but unless you look over the age of 21 you WILL get asked for id. its almost like a safety buffer, because its quite hard to judge a 16 year old from an 18 year old, however when you have an extra 4-5 years to play with obviously it becomes quite a bit easier and the chances of serving someone underage are subsquently alot slimmer.

quite simple really, and it is very effective.
