Nearly a third of Maryland cigarette retailers are selling to minors

About one in every three Maryland stores that sells cigarettes sells them illegally to underage customers, according to WAMU.

Maryland conducted inspections at random between May and September and discovered 32 percent of stores sold cigarettes to customers younger than 18. In some counties, the rate was much higher.

While federal law requires stores to check IDs on customers younger than 27, just 37 percent of underage customers in Maryland were asked to show ID, according to the report.
