None, in most states the legal age of majority is 18, in Alabama and Nebraska it is 19, in Mississippi and Pennsylvania it is 21. There are several states which use the age of 17 to designate a minor as an "adult" for adjudication purposes; these type juvenile laws do not supercede the established age of majority.
