This really isn't a surprise. Many stores sell to minors without carding and/or kids go and get fake IDs. The donut shop in the Trader Joe's shopping center use to cell cigarettes to minors ALL the time back in the '90s and early '00s. Buy a certain amount of donuts and they'd put the cigarettes in the bottom of the bag.
