Default Re: September forum contest outide US

Just thought I would post this concerning tobacco sales and use by a minor AND an adult supplying a minor. It makes no difference whether he is on his own private property, he is in possesion of it and can be charged. You will notice there is a guideline for youths, adults supplying and the company selling it. These are state guidelines and states can be tougher than the posted guideline.

Youth in possession of tobacco:

1st offense: $25 fine plus 8 hours community service
2nd offense: $50 fine plus 16 hours community service
3rd offense and beyond: $100 fine plus 24 hours community service

Individuals providing tobacco to underage youth:

1st offense: $100 fine
2nd offense and beyond: $100-$500 fine

Corporations selling tobacco to underage youth:

1st offense: $25 fine
2nd offense: $100-$200 fine (if within 2 years of first conviction)
3rd offense: $250-$500 fine (if within 2 years of first conviction)
4th offense: $250-$500 fine (if within 5 years of first conviction)
5th offense: $1,000 to $5,000 fine (if within 5 years of first
conviction)
