Re: You MUST BE "18+" to be a Member here!
The problem with allowing underage members, even if they ONLY talk about it and don't smoke, is that it gives them the idea that they CAN.
US law doesn't allow underage tobacco sales, most Hookah vendor also DO NOT allow underage people to make purchases. One can get in SERIOUS trouble selling tobacco to a minor. Since it can't be SOLD to them, this would also cover not allowing under 18 members on sites that discuss tobacco use. It can be considering "glamorizing" tobacco use.
Laws suck, but they are there for a reason.
