Walmart to stop sales of e-cigarettes in U.S. stores: company memo

Walmart told staff on Friday it will stop selling e-cigarettes and electronic nicotine products at its U.S. stores.

This is due to teenage use of such products, reports of vaping-related lung disease, and some deaths.

Reuters is reporting that the handful of deaths may or may not be linked to vitamin E in the vape liquid.

Walmart said growing federal, state and local regulatory complexity and uncertainty were behind its decision.
