24 States Pressure Walmart and Walgreens to Ban Tobacco

Twenty-four state attorneys general have officially asked Walmart and Walgreens to stop selling tobacco, the Huffington Post writes. However, if the stores refuse, they will not be punished or sanctioned. This request comes a month after CVS announced that they would no longer sell tobacco in their stores given how deadly it is to our health.
