Despite several places refusing to sell the August issue of Rolling Stone, people are still buying it. According to the Daily Mail, the circulation of this latest issue wer eup 20% in the first weekend of sales.
Both CVS and Walgreens refused to carry the issue on their shelves, but many other places are still carrying it. America's curiosity seems to be giving Rolling Stone exactly what they were looking for.
The cover of the issue seems to be what people are taking issue with. Many people on the Southcoast of Massachusetts were irked when the article itself seemed to take aim at the town of Dartmouth directly.
