age you can buy cigarettes/ e-cigarettes

Any other 'PCSO issues' that do not fit in to the other forums. Recruitment of PCSOs, day to day PCSO duties, questions about law, joining the regular police, becoming a special, anything else remotely PCSO orientated!!

TWO QUESTIONS :slby:

ONE: what is the age at which you have to be to walk into a shop and buy a packet of cigarettes?

TWO: what is the age at which you have to be to walk into a shop and buy a packet of (e-cigarettes) electronic cigarettes or other nicotine containing products ?

it was 16 for cigarettes, 18 to me seems too high and takes some getting used to after it was 16 for so long .... and I mean a damn long time :slhi:

The Children and Families Act 2014 includes provisions for the relevant minister to make regulations to ban underage sales of e-cigarettes ; however, we have not yet seen draft regulations or a consultation on bringing in such regulations. Due to the timescales for bringing in such regulations I think it is unlikely that anything will be in force before April 2015 at the earliest. But it could happen next year

Have you been involved in enforcing sales of cigarettes or received complaints re sale of e-cigarettes to underage kids?
