Walmart plans to stop selling e-cigarettes; Send Silence Packing is headed to OU

Today is Monday, Sept. 23, 2019. Here’s what you need to know:

Good morning, 

Walmart announced Friday that it plans to stop selling e-cigarettes amid the handful of deaths caused by them.

The company plans on completing the exit after selling the remainder of e-cigarette inventory. Other than e-cigarettes, Walmart will continue to sell other tobacco products.

Earlier this summer, Walmart changed the age requirement to 21 or older to purchase any tobacco or nicotine products. Despite saying it would stop selling sweet-flavored e-cigarettes at the time, Walmart has continued until this point.
