Anyone born after 2008 will never be allowed to buy cigarettes. 

Good idea?

Banning such things just creates black markets, which creates criminals.

Itís government overreach.  Especially when youíre allowed to drink alcohol and smoke marijuana.

They don't kill innocent people with second hand smoke. I was against it, but if shady is too I guess I have to rethink my position.

It doesnít matter what kind of smoke youíre breathing in, lungs arenít meant for any smoke.  Itís all bad for lungs.

New Zealand kids will no longer have any way of looking cool. Sad.

New Zealand is an island in the middle of nowhere. Much harder to smuggle things into.
