Jump to: navigation, search

The minimum legal age to purchase or smoke tobacco products including cigarettes varies by country, and sometimes within a country among states, cantons or cities. Most countries do not have a minimum age to smoke in public, but the majority of countries has a minimum age to legally purchase tobacco products. In order to lower the youth tobacco usage, the current trend is to increase the minimum age.
