Walmart has pioneered several changes in recent years in order to do their part in what they believed would protect the public.
The most recent of those is their announcement today that they will now stop the sales of e-cigarettes. Walmart officials have expressed that along with health officials, they share the concern about the recent vaping deaths and illnesses. This comes after they stopped selling ammunition for handguns and ammunition for some assault-style rifles earlier this month. In addition in 2015, Walmart heard the pleas of numerous petitioners when they delivered a petition to them to stop the sales of assault-style rifles.
Although, the changes do not come without criticism, a portion of the public is praising their efforts to at-least hear their customers. Vaping products have gained popularity in recent recent years touting the “safety” and advertising them as a reliable way to quit smoking. As of Friday, September 20, 2019, eight deaths have been reported and over 500 people have been made ill with the use of vape products.
