Family Dollar, the nation's 2nd largest chain of dollar/discount stores, has announced that it will begin selling cigarettes and other tobacco products in the coming months to its often financially stressed discount shoppers.

Which makes us wonder: What does Family Dollar value? Let Family Dollar know that there is NOTHING family friendly about selling tobacco.

As retailers across the nation remove tobacco products from their shelves to end any association with the death and disease that comes with tobacco use, Family Dollar bucks the trend and embraces Big Tobacco with open arms. This is bad for families and it's bad for the communities Family Dollar serves.
