Default Quick qustion about New Jersey law

Since the buying age for tobacco is 19 here. It isn't illegal for me to purchase tobacco online is it?

I didn't really want to start a thread just for this question.


Oh yea from what I heard. Just the buying age is 19 but the smoking age is something else.

Logic tells me that it is only "illegal" to buy tobacco in the state of NJ. I think it is legal to buy outside of the state. You have to be 18 to purchase online... states cannot govern private sales between states. Well I would just order and if the ATF shows up at ur door you know u were wrong... I would check NJ state site tho lol

hah yeah, reminds me of when I was 18 and they raised the damn age to 19 ONLY in suffolk county, so I had to drive to nassau county, 30 mins away, for tobacco products.

since technically you're purchasing from a different state with different state laws, you should be okay. you are not buying locally....

on hookah sites i never see any issue but on other tobacco sites for cigars and pipes always says the 19 for where ever it is like that (and then the weird random ones that say 21 for no reason)

i dont get why its 19 to buy tobacco, same thing with alcohol being 21, your an adult at 18 so you should be treated like one

I agree with you, if they consider us adults at 18 we should definitely be allowed to drink alcohol legally at 18 and not 21

You are fine. State laws only apply to that state. So unless you buy from a NJ site youre in the clear.

In case you are buying from a different state, neither state law would apply and in that case the federal law will apply. And as far as I know the federal buying age for tobacco is 18. ATF can't touch u .... and I do not think ATF is interested in a person buying few 250g packs ..... ATF is after the gangs and mobs and big smuggling operations.

just thought though, in NJ, is it 19 to buy or 19 to posses and use? cause then its not illegal to buy it but it probably is illegal to receive the package and smoke it
