Im 15 me and my mate went into a cigirette shop and asked if we could buy some cigars. Since the owner is asian(not being racist) we assumed he would sell it too us. But he insisted that we had to be 18 to buy them. So he said would u like to buy some beedi. THey are alot cheaper than cigars 5 bux for like 30. The taste is good as, You get alot out of them for a small thing. The only thing i dont understand is why arent they illegal? According to wikipedia Beedi has 3 times more nicotine and carbon monoxide and also produces 5 times more tar than a normal cigirette yet kids are aloud to buy? Or was this asian guy just cutting us a sly deal. What are your thoughts?
