Where children could buy them?

delilahlilah Tue 29-Jan-13 20:38:40

could or do?

usualsuspect Tue 29-Jan-13 20:41:29

Where? can you get me some that's awful

nocake Tue 29-Jan-13 20:41:56

Even if children can't buy them you should still report them. Illegal cigarettes can be dangerous and they stop money going into the tax coffers to pay for schools, hospitals, roads etc.

YABU. Mind your own business for god's sake.

How much?

HollyBerryBush Tue 29-Jan-13 20:46:30

Kids buy legit fags in the playground

Bobbybird40 Tue 29-Jan-13 20:46:40

Don't be ridiculous ilwdt

If they cost anything over £5.50 then report them as that's daylight robbery. When I smoked I could get 20 cigs for £4.50 and pouches of tobacco for £7...saved me a mint.

CheCazzo Tue 29-Jan-13 20:49:05

I can still get 20 for £4.50! Oh - and nobody likes a snitch OP so - beak out huh?

LadyBeagleEyes Tue 29-Jan-13 20:49:16

I would imagine they only contain tobacco Inlove, probably from abroad or nicked.

Latara Tue 29-Jan-13 20:50:18

No, cos it could be my colleague who does that on the side...

CheCazzo Tue 29-Jan-13 20:50:47

They'll be Polish or from some other Eastern Bloc country. Nothing wrong with them. And kids, if so inclined, will always get hold of fags whether old snitchy pants goes reporting or not!

CheCazzo Tue 29-Jan-13 20:51:16

See branleuse that was EXACTLY what I wanted to say but didn't quite manage!

CheCazzo Tue 29-Jan-13 20:51:53

smile @ Mrcrumps - well really!

yaimee Tue 29-Jan-13 20:53:41

Yabu, live and let live!

DontEvenThinkAboutIt Tue 29-Jan-13 20:55:51

Definitely report them. They can be dangerous and the trade in illegal fags is often linked to organised crime.

MousyMouse Tue 29-Jan-13 20:56:20

report them
no one needs fags anyway disgusting smelly things

littlemisssarcastic Tue 29-Jan-13 20:56:20

Why would you even want to report this OP? Is it because you're worried children are buying them, or is it the whole principle of buying them illegally that bothers you?

MousyMouse Tue 29-Jan-13 20:58:09

can't believe that there are so many yabu's!

So why is selling illegal fags ok?
