The Deadliest Thing About Cigarettes

Although it is illegal for youth and children to purchase cigarettes, the rules about whether or not they can use them are quite fuzzy. Even at my school, the principal’s only requirement is that students only smoke in designated areas. Everybody knows that kids are doing it and that it will have heavy impact on them in the future, yet what can someone do if they witness a youth smoking what they cannot legally obtain? If the items are contraband, what is being done to ensure that youth cannot use them?
