Don’t let Congress weaken FDA oversight of candy-flavored e-cigs and cigars!
In 2016, the Food and Drug Administration finally issued rules to protect kids from e-cigarettes and cigars. But some in Congress are trying to weaken those rules. The tobacco industry is backing legislation that would greatly weaken FDA oversight of e-cigarettes and cigars already on the market - and even exempt some cigars completely. This would make it much harder to protect kids from these products, which come in thousands of candy and fruit flavors like gummy bear, cotton candy, and cherry dynamite.
Walgreens must allow shareholders to vote on ending tobacco sales
Walgreens can't be "at the corner of happy and healthy" when they sell tobacco. Many of Walgreens' shareholders agree. They filed a resolution to address the matter by a vote at the company's next shareholders meeting in January 2017. Walgreens executives are blocking the vote and trying to shut down the discussion. How can a pharmacy chain and healthcare provider justify not only selling the #1 cause of preventable death but also blocking its shareholders from addressing it?
