No, it is endangering a minor. I think.

He can smoke saalaam, soex, or black label though. Saalaam is actually really good. Soex is kinda gross. I've never tried black label

Saalaam spiced chai is delicious

yes, it is okay. Minors in the US are not allowed to buy tobacco, but they can smoke it.

whether it is illegal to use tobacco as a minor, I don't know.It is however illegal for a minor to purchase tobacco products and it should be stated that the HP community does not in any way condone or encourage the use of tobacco products by those under the age of 18.

nope, not sarcasm - as far as I know, no states have laws against minors smoking. They are, however, prohibited from buying any tobacco/tobacco paraphenalia. Still, as many people are about to point out, no one on this forum thinks underage smoking is a good idea and is definitely not a good habit to get into until you are at least old enough to buy your own poison.

Have you never heard of minor in possession? It applies to tobacco, alcohol, and illegal things. Not only that but the person who bought the tobacco can get in serious trouble.

^alcohol, yes, but not tobacco. granted, I'm sure they'd stop a ten year old from lighting up - but unless a cop sees you buying a pack of shisha/cigarrettes or whatever, they will only hassle you if it seems like something other than tobacco.

I know people at my school who have gotten tickets from smoking at age 17, so I think this is wrong.

Edit: But I got to thinking that you can't carry a pack of cigarettes so that might be why.

the law only states that it is illegal to sell or give or buy form a person under the age of 18, but i could not really find anything about it being illegal for them to smoke, and in Virgina and some over state it is allowed for parents to give to minors. but i dont know how it works in ones own house if it has the same rules such as alcohol where parents are allowed to let the minors drink with their supervision and what not. but anways if it is legal it would have to be in the house and she would have to be there. anways i do not recromend it nor does hp

ehh its a rough subject.. but if your mom condones it and its just like you with your brother, then its should be cool.. its like your brother having a beer at a family BBQ in the back yard. its not wrong untill he starts telling all his friends and word spreads, then it can cause a problem

i dont know about the US laws, but here in germany he wouldnt be allowed to smoke herbal shisha as well. smoking itselves is not allowed to minors, it doesnt matter if it is tobacco, herbal stuff or maybe other illegal substances.
EU law is a bit different: since there are many countries inside the EU, where you are allowed to smoke with 16, it is allowed to import tobacco and alcohol with 17 everywhere in the EU. that means here you can import your shisha with 17, but you cant smoke it yet stupid, i know!

Kind of off topic, but wouldn't regular shisha be considered herbal too? I mean tobacco is a herb I believe.

Anyways sorry to get technical.

He may not be able to purchase it or own the pipe, but he definitely smoke it.

No and never. It is illegal to give or aid a minor in the possession or consumption of any substance they should not be allowed to have or purchase otherwise.

whatever the legal business, fact is no cop will walk into your house and arrest your mom, brother or self if he smokes.

I think the real point is that hookah is habit forming, one, and is bad for you, two. So, i dont think its the legal issue that you should be worried about but rather the health one. I'm not saying he/you/anyone shouldnt smoke, but I think you should be very careful what and how habits form at any age.

I almost sure it is illigal to provide or aid any minor to get tobacco but its probably different if you are his parent or guardian.

no one cares about what you do at home (depending on the age of your bro ... if he is 6 yo its smoething different, than smoking with 16)
