Can you leave home legally at age 17 in US and not have anybody stop you and if not then who can stop you?

I was in the same situation, when I was 17, it would depend on your parents because legally they have custody of you until you are 18 so if they really wanted to they could have you arrested for running away, but as soon as you turn 18 there is nothing they could do to stop you.
