Walgreens to sell cannabis-based creams, patches and sprays in 9 states

About a week after CVS announced that it is now selling some cannabis-based products at its stores, Walgreens says it plans do the same.

The CBD products will be hitting the shelves at nearly 1,500 Walgreens stores across the country.

The items will include creams, patches and sprays.

So far, they'll only be available in nine states that have legalized medical marijuana sales, which include Illinois, Indiana, Colorado, Kentucky, New Mexico, Oregon, Tennessee, Vermont and South Carolina.
