Walmart said Wednesday that it will raise the minimum age for tobacco products and e-cigarettes to 21 in all its U.S. stores in an effort to combat tobacco sales to minors.
It will also stop selling solutions and pods for e-cigarettes that are flavored like fruit or desserts that tend to attract younger users. The world’s largest retailer said the new rules will take effect in July, and will also include its Sam’s Club warehouse stores.
