E-cigarettes and vaping products are extremely popular among high school and middle school students, which is why Rite Aid has decided to stop selling the products, reports the New York Times.

Details: The pharmacy chain will phase out the products in its 2,400 stores over the next 90 days, but will continue selling regular tobacco products, per the New York Times. CVS first curbed the sale of tobacco products in 2014, and Walgreens said they are open to a conversation about e-cigarettes and vaping products, per the New York Times.
