    The title says 14 yet the image caption says 12. A 'child of indeterminate age'..

    You people have mental issues being happy that some kids got nicotine poisoning.

    I doubt they check IDs in Coles and Woolies where these NRT products are available on the shelves and can be purchased through any checkout, rather than only at the tobacco counter where they would check IDs.
