Scheutte says cities can’t preempt the Age of Majority when selling tobacco

Smoking_SmallCities cannot refuse to sell tobacco products to people between the ages of 18 and 20. That’s coming from state Attorney General Bill Schuette who issued an opinion today.

Last July the city of Ann Arbor passed an ordinance forbidding the sale of tobacco to anyone under the age of 21.

In his opinion, Attorney General Bill Schuette says the ordinance is contrary to the Age of Majority Act – which says anyone 18 years old or older is considered a legal adult.
