Unlicensed: The Real Story Behind Teenage Smoking - Part 1

Posted:

INGHAM COUNTY, Mich. (WLNS) - To prevent underage smoking, Ingham County licenses cigarette vendors, and revokes their license if a vendor continually sells tobacco to minors. 

Statistics show licensing works, yet it's one of only three counties in the entire state to issue licenses, because for the other 80 counties in Michigan –licensing cigarettes is illegal. The law which prevents it is the legacy of a strong tobacco lobby in Michigan that, 20 years after passage, still remains on the books.

Watch the entire story above.
