Walgreens to Raise Minimum Age to Purchase Tobacco After Federal Criticism


Reported to us by: TIME - Tue, 04/23/2019 - 22:36 - [CET]

Walgreens has decided to raise its minimum age for tobacco sales several weeks after a top federal official chastised the drugstore chain for violating laws restricting access to cigarettes and other tobacco products.

Deerfield, Illinois-based Walgreens Boots Alliance Inc. said Tuesday that it will require customers to be at least 21 years old to purchase tobacco in any of its more than 9,500 stores nationwide. The policy starts Sept. 1.

Former Food and Drug Administration Commissioner Dr. Scott Gottlieb said in March that Walgreens was a top violator of tobacco sales laws among pharmacies that sell those products. Rival CVS Health Corp. stopped several years ago.

Laws restricting tobacco sales vary nationally.

Most states have set a minimum age of 18, while a dozen have raised that to 21, according to the American Lung Association. Alaska and Alabama set their minimum ages at 19. Many cities and counties also have passed local laws establishing the minimum at 21.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said last week that he plans to introduce legislation to raise the minimum age to 21 nationally. The Kentucky Republican called the legislation a top priority.

Shares of EBay Inc. rose more than 5% in the extended session Tuesday after the company reported a first-quarter adjusted profit above Wall Street expectations and raised earnings and sales guidance for the year. EBay said it earned $521 million, or 57 cents a share, in the quarter, compared with $407 million, or 40 cents a share, in the year-ago quarter. Adjusted for one-time items, the company earned $608 million, or 67 cents a share, compared with $548 million, or 53 cents a share, a year ago. Revenue rose 2% to $2.64 billion, compared with $2.58 billion a year ago, the company said. Analysts polled by FactSet had expected EBay to report adjusted earnings of 63 cents a share on sales of $2.6 billion. EBay saw "healthy buyer growth and disciplined cost control," Chief Executive Devin Wenig said in a statement. The company gained "increased confidence in the year" and adjusted its guidance, Wenig said. EBay expects net revenue between $10.83 billion and $10.93 billion, which would represent growth between 2% and 3%, and non-GAAP earnings between $2.64 a share and $2.70 a share. Shares of EBay ended the regular trading day up 1.4%.

Chef José Andrés knows the key to being a successful professional cook is the ability to adapt in unpredictable situations.

“Stop planning and start cooking,” the Spanish-born cook, restauranteur and humanitarian said during a panel at the TIME 100 Summit.

Since 2010, Andrés has rushed to disaster zones wrecked by shattering events like hurricanes, earthquakes and cyclones to do what he was professionally trained to do: provide food to the people who need it. Chefs, he said, are specifically equipped to respond to tragedy.

“A kitchen is chaos. Cooks like me are genetically engineered to adapt to chaos,” he said. “We can be a good force of change to feed the many.”

Andrés has worked in disaster relief efforts for nearly a decade since founding the non-profit organization World Central Kitchen in 2010. The group provided more than 3 million meals in Puerto Rico following Hurricane Maria; the effort landed Andrés a 2019 Nobel Peace Prize nomination. World Central Kitchen has also helped feed people in the aftermaths of wildfires in California, flooding in Nebraska and, recently, a cyclone in Mozambique.

After years of providing meals around the world, Andrés said he wants to be a part of a system that ends world hunger — and he doesn’t care if people think that’s “crazy.”

“I don’t mind that you tell me, ‘You’re pretentious and crazy,'” he said. “If we don’t start doing that thinking, nothing is going to happen.”

Andrés offered a solution that would help in eradicating hunger: open up access to clean cooking to the nearly three billion people in the world who use charcoal or wood in preparing their meals, creating fossil fuels. “Until we don’t end those three billion people stopping cooking with fossil fuels and we give them the same technology we have in our homes — the same clean technology, the same clean gas — so they can feed their families in a clean way, poverty and hunger will never end,” he said.
