Imagine if you could choose the worldwide smoking age (The age at which people can buy tobacco products and smoke them) Which age would you choose and why?

Smoking is dangerous and is more likely to cause horrible illnesses and diseases more quicker in children but it is still very horrible for adults too.

The smoking age can vary by different countries in the world. For example in the UK its 16, in the USA its 18, for some provinces in Canada its 19, in some countries like Iraq and Palestine its 14 and in some countries like Mongolia and Oman its 15.

What do you think would be the best smoking age for the world? (However you aren't allowed to make it illegal altogether because it would cause chaos).

Xhin and poptart. Those are very unrealistic ages. There would be too many people under those ages breaking the law by smoking.

Out of the ages I've listed in the poll, what do you think is the right age for the worldwide smoking age.

i went with 65/70 because at that age, you'll probably be dead by the time they give you cancer.

realistically, i would say 0 because i'm not a fan of the government controlling what people do. i also got cigarettes easily in high school, so it's not like the law does anything as it is

I mean, that's true even when the legal age is 18.

My point is like, by the time you're 35 you're probably responsible enough to try something out of pure curiosity. When you're 18 you might be curious but you also have peer pressure and coolness factor and life stress stuff to succumb to.

So like, don't sell it unless you're >= 35, but decriminalize being underage and smoking.

25, after your brain has developed.

Smokes are good for you. The earlier the better.

In my state, possession or use of cigarettes under 16 isn't illegal, but distribution is. I think they handled it intelligently.

Since age is unsigned, that gets re-interpreted as 4294967295 on 32bit computers, and 9223372036854775807*2+1 on 64bit computers.
