Get Walgreens Out of Tobacco Politics

January 26, 2017 1:15 pm Published by Leave your thoughts

Are you up to date on tobacco news? This just in! Walgreens is getting involved in the politics of its shareholders:

“Walgreens is blocking its shareholders from voting on ending tobacco sales. It’s pretty bad that a pharmacy chain that claims to be “at the corner of happy and healthy” continues to sell the #1 cause of preventable death AND is blocking their shareholders from addressing the matter. You can use this online tool provided by the Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids to send Walgreens executives a message. 

You can also send an email to  Walgreens thru the  Campaign for Tobacco Free Kids website (It takes a minute, they do the rest!)  regarding their actions.” – Ira Sachnoff (Peer Resource Training & Consulting) 

You can make a difference. Walgreens is adding corporate bullying and control to the mountain of reasons tobacco is bad news. Let them know it’s unacceptable.
