Do you want to buy a lighter? Do you have an age restriction on purchasing lighters in your state or country? This article will address what the law says about buying cigarettes and other tobacco products when you are 18 years old. We’ll also discuss some alternatives, like using matches or candles. It is illegal for anyone under the age of 18 to purchase cigarettes/lighters from most stores.
However, there are exceptions made for minors if they’re with their parents who can show identification verifying that both parties live at the same residence (and thus share a legal guardian). Some convenience store chains might allow unaccompanied minors to make limited purchases as well. It’s best not to take any chances though.
