"You can do handstands for all I care - no card, no ciggies"
I gave up smoking 30-odd years ago, so I'm not really up to speed on what they cost or how one buys them these days.
What I do know, however, is that cigarette vending machines used to be coin-operated (back in my active days, they'd take a 5p coin from the UK - worth about 20 Pfennig - for a 1 Deutschmark coin....) and they're not anymore.
In a clever move to try and prevent kids smoking (try and prevent kids smoking - yeah, right), they can only be operated with a debit/cash card issued by a bank.
Which means that the person operating the machine has to be at least 16.
Now, I'm sure they won't try to circumvent the procedure by passing on the goods to kiddies.
Of COURSE, they won't.
