Yeah, and there are many side affects to smoking. (Yellow teeth, Harder to breathe, lung cancer)

Actually, it depends on what state you're in. In the state of Kansas, it's a $75 fine. If you dont pay the fine then they issue a bench warrant which results in arrest.

Sounds like you are making your own "drama". Or at least contributing to it.

More of concern to me is an overall pattern of bad choices you are already starting to make in life. You are only 14 and (with your additional post following this one) you're smoking cancer-sticks and contemplating running away from home. Clearly, you do still need ADULT guidance in your life. I would hate to see you, or any youth who has dreams buried down deep inside, throw it all away. Unless you are being physically abused by your parents, stay home and go to school on time. I know it sounds lame, but if your friends are advising you differently - get different friends - or go it alone (no friends from any social group for a while) and see just who the real YOU is inside and what she desires for her adult life. That's what you want to aim for. And, try to ALWAYS think of cigarettes as Cancer -Sticks. Dreams can't happen if you die of lung cancer at an early age. Google images of cigarette damaged lungs. I would expect/hope your parents or caregivers would welcome the chance to help you quit your nicotine addiction ( it IS a chemical addiction like any other). If you can't get help from them, try your school's Nurse or Counselor for suggestions. I think the Nicoderm patches or gum may be by doctor's prescription only, but there may be a youth support group for those trying to get off Cancer-Sticks and move on with their lives with whiter teeth, better breath, the knowledge that they won't die of lung cancer and their face will remain younger looking (attractive!) as an adult. Good luck to you. Never give up your dreams - sometimes it's hard work to get there.

in my state (Midwest) it's a big fine, like $1000 and mandatory court appearance.

yes, because the store owner knows better than to start a child life out with bad lungs so that in the future you will not be able to breathe or have life-supporting machine with you every day just to breathe out.

Yes because you have to 18 to purchase cigarettes.

Wait... I know you. And there is no mistake. Your a wanted man and it is time that you pay for your crimes. So you have committed crimes against United States of America and her people, what do you say in your defense?

Yes, you can get into legal trouble if you are caught smoking at the age of 14 years.
