CVS Caremark announced that effective on October 1st, all 7600 of their pharmacies will stop the sale of cigarettes and other related tobacco products. The company which sells over $2 billion in tobacco and tobacco related products each year, wants to set a precedent in the industry. 

At the same time, CVS, which also sells products to assist smokers in quitting felt it was a necessary change. It is not right to be selling good health choices and tobacco under the same roof.

President Obama weighed in on this announcement. As a former smoker, I am glad that CVS is taking giant steps in this direction towards a healthier nation. By eliminating smoking, it will bring down healthcare costs and save lives in the long run.
