Pro

Teenagers are fully capable young adults that are capable of making responsible decisions but sample servers refuse these future customers.
TheUnexaminedLife

Con

Teenagers (assuming the age range of 13-17), can be excluded free samples on the grounds that they are unlikely consumers in purchasing the products that the samples promote because they do not earn a sufficient disposable income. A company ought not be expected to give away its commodities without expectation of capital return by attracting customers. Teenagers additionally can be denied free samples based on legal requirements about who can consume these samples, say with alcohol. However, with certain products like energy drinks, yes, it would make logistical sense for companies to cultivate a product demand and desire within teenagers. Thereby in these cases, if the company chooses to pursue this market, free samples ought to be available.
