Legal Status No Deterrent

Summary:
Study in the UK reports that children find alcohol, cigarettes, and marijuana easy to obtain, despite the fact that current laws forbid their sale to minors or outlaw the substances completely.
City:
State:
Country: UK
Commentary:
Is it hopeless to look to legislation to deter abuse by minors? Probably not, but clearly there are some cultural factors involved here that are trumping the de facto law. Certainly this is an important interplay of influences to be mindful of, for the developing mind needs drugs not! For a society to be tolerant, those indulging need to be responsible! It cannot work any other way.
