North Carolina has the sixth highest rate of retailers violating laws aimed at curtailing the sale of tobacco products to underage youths, according to a federal study released Tuesday.

The state’s rate of 13.9 percent for federal fiscal year 2011-12, which ended Sept. 30, 2012, was above the national average of 9.1 percent, the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration reported. The program is part of the federal agency’s initiative on proactively preventing substance abuse and mental illness.
