Are Candy Cigarettes Illegal In Your Area
Not Sold in Supermarkets, Convenience Stores.
Candy cigarettes are not available for sale in many states and municipalities. Most famously, St. Paul Minnesota has outlawed these vintage candies for fear that they are the gateway to smoking. In an age where cigarette smoking in films can risk an R rating, lawmakers on all levels have gone into overdrive in order to protect kids from something that is responsible for a big chunk of tax revenue. It is almost as if these states are intentionally making people aware that a behavior is "taboo" in order to make it seem more "cool" or "rebellious." Otherwise, they would just outlaw the sale of tobacco products.
Notes and Special Information
Special note: As we all know, telling kids that you aren't allowed to have something, or to do something, is the perfect way to keep them from learning about it behind your back.
