Walgreens Will Stop Selling E-Cigarettes

WALGREENS SAYS DIFFERING REGULATIONS ARE MAKING IT TOO DIFFICULT TO SELL E-CIGARETTES IN ITS STORES

(CNN) – Walgreens will no longer sell e-cigarettes.

The retail pharmacy chain announced Tuesday it will stop selling the products amid “developing regulations in a number of states and municipalities.”

The laws come as governments struggle with questions of how to regulate vape products after several deaths have been blamed on them.

Walmart made a similar announcement last month.

Walgreens will continue to sell traditional cigarettes.
