hi /eh/,
Last night i was watching some law around the world,and the law of smokes has attracted me to deeply. I find it a little bit incomplete.
All smoke laws speak about sell/buy cigarette for minor, but no one mentions about if an adult give a cigarette to a minor. Is it a crime or not?
Tell me about your country

If your locality has a law against selling cigarettes to minors, it will normally also be illegal to give one to them. The reason they're not allowed to sell to minors is because they don't want minors to possess the item in question.

That's not to say there isn't going to be some weird backwards jurisdiction in the world where it's illegal to sell to minors but not illegal for minors to possess it, but in most places the laws are fairly logical even if they're sometimes convoluted.

If you are not legally allowed to purchase an item, you aren't typically allowed to possess the item either.

Ok, but the problem is, if an adult give a cigarette to a minor it's not like buy or sell and if a minor can own a cigarette, who is in trouble? An adult only give a cigarette to a minor, the law only say buy/sell, and a minor smoke the cigarette and he can own it, so he can smokes, but he can't buy. So, who is in real trouble?

The closest analogy I've seen is liquor laws. There are localities where someone under the arbitrary age (and the international variation in legal drinking ages leads me to believe that every possible number is largely arbitrary) is allowed to drink in the presence of a legal adult who buys a drink for them.

The difference is that right now tobacco is perceived to be far worse than alcohol as far as intoxicants go. It's not unheard of to see a beer commercial and a PSA for a service to quit smoking all in the same commercial break.
