CVS To Stop Selling Tobacco Products

Have you seen the news?

CVS has announced that they will discontinue selling cigarettes in all their locations by October 1st.

CVS Caremark Corp. and other major drugstore chains have been adding clinics to their stores for several years now. Their pharmacists deliver flu shots and other immunizations, and those clinics also have been expanding the care they deliver. They now help people manage chronic illnesses like high blood pressure and diabetes.

CEO Larry Merlo noted that conditions like those are made worse by smoking.

“We’ve come to the conclusion that cigarettes have no place in a setting where health care is being delivered,” he said.
