Hello folks. I been smoking pipe tobacco for about 2 months now. And I'm limited to captain black because...it's what my local smoke shop carries. I tried to buy online from pipes and cigars they won't sell to me because I'm under 21. Which sucks because I'm 18 and last time I checked, that is the legal age to buy and smoke tobacco.

You might have to stock up at a pipe shop where the age is 18. This inconvenience will only last a few years, so that's an up-side. The online folks are under a lot of pressure and scrutiny, so I wouldn't game the system.

So much of American politics is "Think of the children!" that you don't want to become a test case. The online sellers clearly want no traffic that isn't well above the age curve and I don't blame them.
If you're near a local establishment, see if they'll order specific products for you.

Hi Nick, welcome to the forums.

I order from the online seller "Just For Him" once in a while because they carry a few blends that I like, and I noticed that you only have to be 18 to order from them. So you might want to check them out, and also check out their own blends like Shortcut to Mushrooms, a nice english crossover type of blend that has a little latakia in it.

Good luck!

Sure! Lie about it. I'm selfish enough that I don't care about the company or its employees. Nothing selfish about that approach.
Nick: A lot of things suck about being 18. Many e-tailers use the location of your USP to determine the age requirement, kinda of a "bouncer" at the gate. Others follow what the local government where they are located dictates. So, suck it up, keep looking and aging.
My suspicions are that I'm feeding a troll. Which is usually entertaining.

At the last pipe show, I was carded to get a sample of tobacco. I am only 50, but my hair is beyond grey. They carded everyone, regardless. Just not worth the risk.

Thank you for choosing Pipes and Cigars! As we’re sure you’re aware, you must be of legal age to purchase tobacco products and related items. Since these minimum age requirements vary by state, we use a third party company, Veratad Technologies, to assure that you are of legal age to purchase tobacco products. With the information provided, Veratad was unable to confirm your age in comparison with the information contained in their databases.
Someone said bouncer?

The age is 19 in Alabama and some areas have set it to a stricter 21. But, once you have your smokes, you can smoke them anywhere you want unabated.

Interesting for sure, I was unaware.
You can always do what the "aged challenged" have done for years. Get someone you know that's of age to pull the trigger on the order for you and pay them back. This age requirements thing that floats between 18 and 21 is stupid.
If everything on the internet went according to plan, everyone would actually have read all the "terms and conditions" they've agreed to over the years. It works both ways.

I've never been carded online. When the screen comes up saying check here if you're 18 or older.... did you try clicking yes? Smokingpipes just has you click a check mark saying you're over 18. What's the problem?

Just buy dope and unregistered guns and trade those to your friends for tobacco. I traded a Thai massage sex slave for two tubs of Mixture 79 last week.

Just use your bank card and put your mom or dad's name and address. Thompson cigar is a good site with great deals. If you don't have a bank card ask family to buy it and pay them back. Where there's a will there's a way, friend.

Yeah, the powers that be have no desire to make tobacco interstate commerce easier, only harder. Sucks.
