The sale and use of tobacco products is a public health concern and is the leading cause of preventable deaths in the United States. Pharmacies are places where people go to purchase medicine and products that increase their well-being and health. However, most pharmacies in the United States also sell and market the use of cigarettes in their stores. Tobacco products are known to cause more than 480,000 deaths a year in the United States. The use of tobacco affects not only those who use these products but also the environment and the individuals that live in those communities.
