Walgreens Will No Longer Sell Tobacco Products to Anyone Under 21
A retail giant will soon implement a new policy in hopes of reducing tobacco use among teens and young adults. Walgreens will not sell tobacco products to anyone under the age of 21 beginning September 1st.
This new policy change comes after the US Food and Drug Administration criticized the company for selling tobacco to more minors than any other pharmacy chain. Although the federal legal age to buy tobacco in the US is 18 years old, several states have raised that to 21.
