Even if you are emancipated, you still have to follow many laws for children under 18.

Until you reach the legal age, you

  • cannot drink alcohol,
  • cannot smoke or buy cigarettes,
  • cannot drop out of school,
  • cannot vote,
  • cannot drive, and
  • cannot work more hours than allowed for your age.*

*To find out how many hours you are allowed to work, see Working.
