so, in Illinois, a 16 year old can sell cigarettes to an 18 year old.
cigarettes can be sold out of a vending machine if under the direct supervision of the owner of the establishment or an employee 18 years of age. (720 ILCS 675/2) make sense?
ah...i didn't see any owner is this corner of the restaurant.
oh, and a sign posted in a conspicuous place upon the premises must be in plain view: ‘SURGEON GENERAL’S WARNING: SMOKING BY PREGNANT WOMEN MAY RESULT IN FETAL INJURY, PREMATURE BIRTH, AND LOW BIRTH WEIGHT’ (410 ILCS 85/4)...............see it? don't you see it? oh, it's that smoke-faded sticker in the upper right-hand corner.
notice how the cigarettes are all upside down?
i think the law is upside down.
