Well what say you try a novel approach & raise the legal age then actually verify the purchasers age? Boom, end of problem.

Ms. Wang, please take your nanny state, helicopter mommy mentality away & let the big people live our lives as we see fit.

Good job pushing it underground. Now let's see how many sick children you will have from unregulated products floating around the schools.
