Youth Access to Tobacco and Synar Info
The federal Synar Amendment requires states to have laws in place prohibiting the sale
and distribution of tobacco products to persons under 18 years-of-age and to enforce those
laws effectively. Annual Synar checks, required by the amendment, show that great strides
have been made the reduction in retailer violations of the law and youth access to tobacco
products in Michigan.
