(KMOV) -- States are urging major pharmacy chains to stop selling tobacco products.

A group of Attorneys General are joining the fight against smoking. The prosecutors sent a letter to Walgreens, Rite-Aid, Wal-Mart, Kroger, and Safeway telling them to stop selling tobacco products.

In February, CVS Caremark announced that it would stop selling tobacco at its CVS stores by October saying it was the right thing to do to help its customers achieve better health.
